Israel’s minister of internal security quit his post until a criminal probe against him is over. Tzachi Hanegbi’s temporary resignation came Tuesday after Attorney General Menachem Mazuz elected to investigate allegations that Hanegbi made illegal political appointments while he was environment minister from 2001 to 2003. Mazuz has also decided to investigate other senior civil servants in connection with the appointments. Prime Minister Ariel Sharon accepted the resignation of Hanegbi, who will serve as minister without portfolio during the investigation.
