Two Turkish cabinet ministers resigned on Wednesday over a corruption probe that has pitted the government against the judiciary and rattled foreign investor confidence, officials said.

Sons of Interior Minister Muammer Guler and Economy Minister Zafer Caglayan were among the 24 people arrested on graft charges on Dec. 17. Announcing his resignation, Caglayan described the case as an "ugly plot" against the government. Guler stepped down shortly afterward, sources told Reuters.
