MEXICO CITY — Mexico's point man in the drug war resigned Monday in a Cabinet shakeup that raised questions on whether the government's strategy to crack down on brutal gangs will change course.

Attorney General Eduardo Medina-Mora did not give a reason for his resignation, saying only in his farewell speech that "we have done a lot to clean the house," referring to his efforts to combat rampant police and government corruption.
