Mexico minister of environment and natural resources offers to resign

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexico’s minister of environment and natural resources Josefa Gonzalez Blanco Ortiz Mena presented her resignation to President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador after causing a delay to a commercial flight, the office of the president said Saturday.
