Shinzo Abe Resigns Eugene Hoshiko AP

Shinzo Abe has resigned as prime minister of Japan due to another bout of ulcerative colitis, which also cut short his first term (2006-07). He is Japan’s longest-serving PM, having returned to power in 2012. Yosihide Suga, his right-hand man, was expected to take over later Wednesday. (Eugene Hoshiko/AP)
