      Blair's aide quits over Kelly case

      LONDON, Aug 29: The controversy over the death of British weapons
      expert David Kelly claimed its first political scalp when a powerful
      aide to Prime Minister Tony Blair announced on Friday that he was
      resigning.

      Alastair Campbell, one of the longest serving members of Mr Blair's
      inner circle and often called the "real deputy prime minister"
      because of his influence, said he would be standing down as the prime
      minister's director of communications and strategy.

      "It has been an enormous privilege to work so closely in opposition
      and in government for someone I believe history will judge as a great
      transforming prime minister," he said in a statement.-AFP/Reuters
