Apology, resignation from BBC

LONDON, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- Errors in a provocative report on Iraqi weapons by Britain's dominant broadcaster has prompted an apology and a resignation from the global network.
BBC Chairman Gavyn Davies announced Wednesday he would resign in the wake of an independent panel's evaluation of certain BBC stories. Those stories, by reporter Andrew Gilligan, claimed Tony Blair's government had hyped Saddam Hussein's weapons threat, the BBC reported Wednesday.
