Taiwan premier Jiang Yi-huah quits after poll loss

The Prime Minister of Taiwan, Jiang Yi-huah, has resigned after his ruling pro-China party suffered heavy defeats in local elections.

The Kuomintang party appears to have lost control of districts across the country, including the mayor's office in the capital, Taipei.

Saturday's polls were widely seen as a referendum on relations with China.
