LIMA (Reuters) - Peruvian Prime Minister Salomon Lerner unexpectedly resigned on Saturday, local radio station RPP reported, in what would be the first ministerial change since President Ollanta Humala took office in late July.

A source at the presidential palace would not confirm or deny the resignation of Lerner, who is seen as one of Humala's key advisors.
