WASHINGTON - US Senator Robert Menendez will temporarily step aside as ranking member, or top Democrat, on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, in the wake of his indictment on corruption charges, two Senate aides said on Wednesday.

Democratic Senators Barbara Boxer and Benjamin Cardin are the next most senior Democrats on the influential panel.

It was not yet clear which would be named as Menendez's replacement, although Boxer is believed to be concentrating on environmental issues in her last two years as a senator before retiring.
