Iceland's ruling coalition has named Sigurdur Ingi Johanssonn as the new Prime Minister, with early elections to be held in the autumn.

Johannsson, who is 53, is agriculture and fisheries minister and deputy leader of the Progressive Party.

The move comes after Prime Minsiter and PP chairman Sigmundur Gunnlaugsson stepped down in the wake of the leaked Panama Papers.

The leaks, from Panama law firm Mossack Fonseca, showed Gunnlaugsson owned an offshore firm with his wife.
