New protests are planned in Iceland after revelations about offshore accounts held by the country's prime minister prompted him to step down.

Protesters plan to gather outside parliament Wednesday afternoon for the third consecutive day of demonstrations calling for a new government in the North Atlantic island nation.

Prime Minister Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson stepped aside Tuesday after a massive leak of documents from a Panamanian law firm suggested his use of offshore accounts had created a significant conflict of interest with his official duties.

He denied wrongdoing and has recommended that his deputy, Sigurdur Ingi Johannsson, take over as prime minister for an unspecified period.

Opposition leaders have not been mollified by this plan.

David Haraldson, a 41-year-old high school teacher, says "I don't think anyone is truly in charge."
