According to the UNIAN news agency, Pope Benedict XVI has reportedly already accepted Cardinal Huzar's request to stand down on health grounds.  An official statement is expected to be issued later today. 

The resignation will give cause for a Synod of Bishops to take place in the next two months to elect a successor.
