LONDON - Britain's Defense Secretary Liam Fox resigned on Friday following a furor over his close friendship with a businessman with defense-related interests, Britain's Ministry of Defense said.

A stream of news stories about Fox and his former flat-mate and best man Adam Werritty, who met frequently with Fox and falsely identified himself as his adviser, had eroded Fox's credibility ahead of an inquiry into the affair that was due to be published within days.
