German defence minister Guttenberg resigns
German Defence Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg has stepped down after he was found to have copied large parts of his university doctorate.
Mr Guttenberg, considered until recently a possible candidate for chancellor, has already been stripped of his PhD.
He told a news conference he was resigning from all political offices.
More than 20,000 German academics wrote to Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday complaining he was still in his job.
But Ms Merkel had continued to stand by him, with her party facing three state elections later this month.
“I thank the chancellor for her support but I have reached the limits of my strength,” he told reporters in Berlin.
A 39-year-old aristocrat, Mr Guttenberg had come under pressure after a Bremen University law professor began reviewing his 2006 thesis with the aid of the internet.
Reports emerged of a passage from a newspaper article being published word for word, and then of a paragraph from the US embassy website being used without attribution.
Eventually the University of Bayreuth that had awarded him a doctorate decided that Mr Guttenberg had “violated scientific duties to a considerable extent”.
