DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) -- Syrian state-run television says the Cabinet has resigned as the country sees the worst unrest in decades.
President Bashar Assad accepted the Cabinet's resignation following a meeting Tuesday.
The resignation is the latest concession by the government aimed at appeasing more than a week of mass protests.
Assad is expected to address the nation in the next 24 hours to announce he is lifting the emergency law and moving to annul other harsh restrictions on civil liberties and political freedoms.
