BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq's agriculture minister resigned on Friday in response to the death of a protester in the northern city of Mosul, where police said they fired shots into the air to disperse a crowd of stone-throwing Sunni Muslim activists.
Ezz al-Din al-Dawla is the second Iraqi minister to announce his resignation over the handling of Sunni protests, which have been staged daily against the Shi'ite led-government since December.
Iraq's finance minister told a crowd of Sunni protesters he was quitting earlier this month.
