"The top federal prosecutors in 21 of the country's 31 states and federal district have resigned, the Mexican Attorney General's Office announced Monday. The prosecutors quit on Friday, said state office coordinator Rosa Elena Torres Davila. It was the largest mass resignation in the agency's recent history and came a week after the department had announced that 111 of its staff had been charged with crimes and 192 more fired for botching cases."
