Austria's far-right ministers resign after removal of interior minister

All the remaining ministers from Austria's far-right Freedom Party have resigned after Interior Minister Herbert Kickl was removed in a corruption scandal that has brought down the govt. Chancellor Sebastian Kurz has proposed to designate technocrats to fill the important ministries abandoned by the far-right FPO until elections could be held in September. During dismissal, Kickl said he would call for a no-confidence vote.
