Norway justice minister resigns, averting government crisis

Norway's justice minister announced her resignation on Tuesday, averting a potential government crisis after she published a controversial Facebook post.

Sylvi Listhaug, who had been under fire for a week, announced her resignation on the social media network, sparing Conservative Prime Minister Erna Solberg from calling a vote of confidence in the government, whose outcome was uncertain.
