Egypt public prosecutor resigns amid referendum results

Egypt's new public prosecutor, appointed by President Mohamed Morsi last month, has resigned from his post, judicial sources and the main state newspaper al-Ahram said on Monday.


The resignation of Public Prosecutor Talaat Ibrahim follows a furore among members of the judiciary who said Mursi's decision in November to sack the former public prosecutor and appoint Ibrahim was an assault on the independence of the judiciary. (Roi Kais and Reuters)
