British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to resign

Boris Johnson

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was expected to announce Thursday that he would resign, having spent days defying calls for him to stand down from dozens of fellow Conservative Party members and even senior ministers he had only appointed within the last 36 hours.

On Thursday morning there was a quiet anticipation outside No.10 Downing Street, the gated official residence and office of the prime minister.

A phalanx of press waited in a cordon across the other side of the street, aiming their cameras and shouting questions at even the most junior, unknown official walking in or out.

After a fresh wave of high-profile resignations, U.K. media including the BBC reported that Johnson had finally agreed to resign.
