SHAKEUP

British Energy Minister Resigns

Britain's Energy Secretary Chris Huhne resigned Friday after prosecutors charged him with trying to pin a speeding penalty on his ex-wife. Prime Minister David Cameron said Huhne "made the right decision" in resigning, as his government faces another major shakeup. Huhne's ex-wife, Vicky Pryce, will face the same charge of perverting the course of justice, for trying to accept speeding penalty points on her then-husband's behalf in 2003. But Huhne has maintained that he is innocent despite the very serious criminal charge against him.
