Lebanese Interior Minister Hassan Sabei resigned Sunday hours after violent mobs attacked and burned the Danish Embassy in Beirut to protest the publication of caricatures of Islam's Prophet Muhammad in Danish and other newspapers. Sabei made the announcement himself as he left an emergency cabinet meeting called by President Emile Lahoud at the Presidential Palace. "I submitted my resignation to Prime Minister Fuad Saniora and left the meeting immediately," he said, when asked if his resignation had been accepted.
