UPDATE (7:20 a.m., June 24): Britain will leave the European Union, and Prime Minister David Cameron will resign before October.
Those were the final conclusions of the much anticipated Brexit vote, held Thursday. When all the ballots were counted, 52 percent of Britons voted to abandon the EU, with 72 percent of the more than 46 million registered voters casting ballots. Cameron, who had lobbied hard to remain part of the union, said the country now needed new leadership.
