SOFIA, Bulgaria (AP) - Bulgaria's prime minister says his center-right government will resign amid nationwide social protests.

Boiko Borisov told Parliament on Wednesday that he would hand in his resignation after the regular Cabinet meeting later in the day.

The move comes as tens of thousands of protesters across the country - which is an EU member - hit the streets in the weekend and accused the government of failing to improve their falling living standards.

The protest in the capital, Sofia, on Tuesday night turned violent as police in riot gear clashed with protesters leaving 14 people injured.
