Turkish Cypriot government resigns Chris Buell at 10:45 AM ET
The minority Turkish Cypriot government has resigned after months of inaction following a failed attempt to reunite the island. Rauf Denktash, leader of the Turkish republic on the island, accepted the resignation of Prime Minister Ali Talat and his administration, although Talat will remain in his post until a new government is formed. A UN plan to unify Cyprus failed last spring after Greek Cypriots rejected the plan in a referendum. BBC News has more.
