Turkey's economy minister, ensnared in a vast corruption scandal that has roiled the government of Prime Minister Recept Tayyip Erdogan, resigned Wednesday.
"I am stepping down from my post as economy minister so that full light can be shed on this ignoble operation targeting our government," Zafer Caglayan said in a short statement.

Caglayan's son is one of two dozen people who have been charged as part of a high-level bribery and corruption probe that has hit Erdogan with the biggest challenge yet to his 11 years in power.
