KATHMANDU - Nepal's Prime Minister Jhalanath Khanal resigned on Sunday pushing the country back into turmoil as political parties scrambled to form a new coalition government and draft a new constitution.

Khanal, a moderate communist, was elected six month ago and vowed to carry out the promises made in a 2006 peace deal with Maoist rebels.

But political in-fighting blocked his attempts to help thousands of ex-Maoist fighters living in camps, and to prepare Nepal's first republican constitution after the monarchy was abolished in 2008.
