PARIS - Georges Tron, a junior minister in French President Nicolas Sarkozy's center-right government who has been accused of sexual harrassment by two women, resigned on Sunday, Prime Minister Francois Fillon said.

"Mr Georges Tron ... today informed Prime Minister Francois Fillon of his resignation from the government," the prime minister's office said in a statement.

French prosecutors have opened an inquiry into the accusations against Tron, which he has called "incredible".
