BELFAST Northern Ireland's first minister resigned on Thursday and asked the British government to suspend the province's parliament, in a protest over a murder that police said was linked to the disbanded Irish Republican Army.
First Minister Peter Robinson's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) had said on Wednesday its ministers would resign if its call for an adjournment was not backed or London did not agree to suspend parliament.
