Swedish Foreign Minister Laila Freivalds resigned Tuesday after she was accused of lying to the media about the shutting down of a far-right Web site that solicited cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad. Freivalds said at a news conference she could not stay in the government in the "current situation." Prime Minister Goran Persson said Freivalds would be temporarily replaced by Deputy Prime Minister Bo Ringholm.
