Lebanon's justice minister resigns

Lebanon’s justice minister has resigned in protest, the third Cabinet member to do so following last week’s devastating explosion in Beirut, the state news agency reported Monday.

Marie-Claude Najm’s resignation on Monday came a day after the ministers of information and environment stepped down.
Meanwhile, Lebanese Prime Minister Hassan Diab has informed President Michel Aoun that he was planning to resign shortly, Al- Arabiya reported, quoting local media reports.

A Cabinet meeting is scheduled for Monday, amid reports that the whole government might resign. If a total of seven ministers quit, the Cabinet would effectively become a caretaker government.
