South African President Jacob Zuma is facing mounting pressure to step down over corruption charges, and his scheduled "state of the nation" address has been postponed as the African National Congress party weighs his future.

The latest: Zuma has repeatedly resisted calls to resign, but South Africa’s online news service Times Live, cited unnamed sources, reports that Zuma will step aside soon under certain conditions. The report said a deal was struck late Tuesday local time with party leader Cyril Ramaphosa.
