British Prime Minister David Cameron is cutting back his trip to Africa even further so he can prepare for an emergency session of Parliament on the phone hacking crisis.
Cameron's office announced Monday that the trip was being cut short by seven hours. The high-profile resignations are making it harder for Cameron to contain the intensifying scandal on the eve of an unwelcome public grilling by lawmakers for Rupert Murdoch and his son James.
Cameron had had initially intended to spend five days traveling to four countries, including Rwanda and South Sudan.
He had already cut back his trip, dropping stops in Rwanda and South Sudan. He cut back the trip further on Monday.
