Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte on Tuesday tendered his resignation as promised to President Sergio Mattarella, who asked him to stay on at the head of a caretaker government pending consultations, officials said.

Conte earlier announced that he would resign as premier, after launching a scathing attack on far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini for "irresponsibly" trying to bring the government down.
