LONDON (AP) — British Home Secretary Suella Braverman left her job on Wednesday, the second senior minister in a week to leave Prime Minister Liz Truss’ government.

It was not immediately clear whether she quit or was fired.

Braverman, appointed less than two months ago, is a popular figure on the ruling Conservative Party’s right wing and a champion of more restrictive immigration policies.
