ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Two Cabinet ministers whose sons have been arrested in Turkey's corruption and bribery scandal have resigned.

Economy Minister Zafer Caglayan and Interior Minister Muammer Guler both stepped down on Wednesday.

Their sons are among 24 people who have been arrested in Turkey on bribery charges in a police corruption probe that has targeted Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's allies.

Erdogan has denounced the corruption probe as a foreign plot to thwart Turkey's rise and to damage his government ahead of local elections in March.

The opposition had demanded the dismissal of the ministers.
