PA Communications Minister to Resign

The Palestinian Authority’s communications minister, Mashour Abu Daka, intends to resign from Prime Minister Salam Fayyad's government, sources in Ramallah told the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news agency on Thursday.

The precise timing of the minister's decision was not immediately clear, the report said, but his resignation comes days after he publicly condemned a secretive PA initiative to censor opposition websites.
