Report: Livni Will Quit

Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni will announce her resignation from the government if Prime Minister Ehud Olmert does not resign, Israeli media reported Wednesday morning. She is scheduled to meet with the Prime Minister at 4 p.m. (9 a.m. EDT) and then will hold a press conference.

The Foreign Minister was catapulted into the top political echelon when she backed former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's program to destroy Jewish communities in the Gaza and northern Samaria regions.
