Venezuela's oil minister, Tareck El Aissami, said on Monday he would resign amid corruption investigations into state-owned oil company PDVSA, in a bid to support the investigative effort. Venezuelan anti-graft police have arrested a mayor, two judges and three government officials in connection with unusual operations in the ruling party and cargoes of oil, state television and sources familiar with the matter said on Monday.
