Dr Zahi Hawassn annouces his resignation today 17th July,...

Just picked this up on Facebook, Nigel Hetherington has posted "Dr Zahi Hawass, Minister of State for Antiquities has just announced his resignation with immediate effect. Its direct from the Ministry, Breaking news, you will have to wait for official press release"

Nigel is well known in media and Egyptology circles and based in Cairo so does get news early.

Oh, boy...I should probably wait to hear more, but my first thought is "here we go again." He's upset about not getting what he wants, is resigning in protest, he'll get some changes he wants, will get the satisfaction of being begged to come back ("Help us Zahi, you're our only hope...") and will come back again.
