Baghdad mayor resigns

"Baghdad’s mayor became the third official to submit his resignation this month following street protests in the country to demand better living conditions and anti-corruption measures, state television channel Iraqiya said.

Saber al-Issawi handed his resignation to Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, the channel reported today. The governors of the southern provinces of Basra and Babil also resigned earlier this month."
