Albania's interior minister Xhafaj resigns

Oct 27 (Reuters) - Albania’s Interior Minister Fatmir Xhafaj resigned on Saturday and will be replaced by Prime Minister Edi Rama’s security advisor Sander Lleshi, a former army general, Rama has announced.

Xhafaj’s resignation came as a surprise a week after police arrested 27 people in a major drug rings crackdown and two former ruling Socialist lawmakers over graft, but failed to catch a drug lord who has eluded arrest for two years now.
