Israel Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman Resigns
Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman has resigned after prosecutors decided to charge him with breach of trust.

The case against him relates to a financial scandal dating back more than a decade.
His resignation comes five weeks before Israel's general election.
