UK aid minister Patel quits after Israel meetings

Britain's International Development Secretary Priti Patel leaves no 10 Downing Street in London on November 8, 2017.

Britain’s overseas aid minister Priti Patel quit Wednesday following unauthorised meetings in Israel, becoming the latest cabinet member caught up in a whirlwind of scandals rocking Prime Minister Theresa May’s government.

“I offer a fulsome apology to you and to the government for what has happened and offer my resignation,” she wrote in a letter to May, becoming the second minister to leave the cabinet in one week.
