China's finance minister resigns for "personal reasons"

Chinese Finance Minister Jin Renqing has resigned for "personal reasons," the government said Thursday, amid concerns over surging inflation and just weeks ahead of an expected reshuffling of top positions.
The official Xinhua News Agency said that Xie Xuren, 59, director of the State Administration of Taxation, had replaced Jin.
The State Council, or Cabinet, has transferred Jin to a government think tank, where he will be deputy chief, a ministerial-level position.
