Egypt's Prosecutor General Resigns

Egypt's prosecutor general, appointed to the job just last month by President Mohammed Morsi, on Monday gave into demands of lower prosecutors by agreeing to resign next week, CNN reported.

Potesters converged on the prosecuting general's office at the High Court Sunday, refusing to leave until Talaat Abdallah resigned, said the report.
