Cyprus foreign minister to quit over navy base blast

Cypriot Foreign Minister Markos Kyprianou has said he intends to resign over an explosion at a naval base that killed 13 people.

President Dimitris Christofias is also coming under growing public pressure to stand down after it emerged that government ministers had been aware of potential dangers at the naval base for several years.
