ISLAMABAD - Pakistan's ambassador to the United States resigned on Tuesday, days after a Pakistani-American businessman said the envoy was behind a controversial memo that accused the Pakistani military of plotting a coup in May.

Envoy Husain Haqqani said on his Twitter account he had sent his resignation to the prime minister. State television said his resignation had been accepted. A spokesman for the prime minister's office said Haqqani was asked to resign.
