PARIS (AP) — French President Francois Hollande is dissolving the government after an open feud in his Cabinet over the country's economy.

Prime Minister Manuel Valls offered up his Socialist government's resignation Monday after accusing his economy minister of crossing a line with open criticism of the government's policies.

Hollande accepted the resignation and ordered Valls to form a new government by Tuesday.

France has had effectively no economic growth this year and Hollande's approval ratings are in the teens.
