The week's news at a glance.
One of Tony Blairs top Cabinet ministers resigned this week in protest over the prime ministers support for war in Iraq. Robin Cook, a former foreign minister and current parliamentary leader of the Labor Party, said he could not accept responsibility for committing Britain to a war without international agreement or domestic support. Two other ministers followed suit. As many as half of the Labor members of Parliament are opposed to the war, but the opposition Conservative Party is on Blairs side.
