WORLD Bank president Paul Wolfowitz apologised today for making a "mistake" over hefty pay rises given to his girlfriend at the development lender, but refused to say if he might quit.
“I made a mistake, for which I am sorry,” Mr Wolfowitz told a news conference as an uproar intensified over an employment package worth nearly $US200,000 ($242,000) given by the World Bank to his Libyan-born partner, Shaha Riza.
The former deputy US defence secretary, one of the architects of the war in Iraq, refused to say if he might have to resign as the World Bank's board of governors met to discuss the row today.
