Northern Ireland's First Minister Peter Robinson said Thursday he will resign in a political crisis caused by alleged Irish Republican Army (IRA) activity that threatens to roll back progress made in the peace-making process.
Robinson, the head of the province's power-sharing executive, said he would be replaced temporarily by Arlene Foster, a colleague from his pro-British Democratic Unionist Party (DUP).
