Turkey's Economy Minister Zafer Caglayan resigned over a high-level corruption probe on Wednesday, while describing it as a "dirty set-up" against the government.

Caglayan's son Salih Kaan Caglayan was among 24 people arrested on graft charges last week in a case centering on state-run lender Halkbank. Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan responded by purging police investigators involved.
