STOCKHOLM: Two external members of the Nobel literature prize committee quit on Monday after criticizing the scandal-hit Swedish Academy, reports Reuters.

The 233-year-old Academy was forced to introduce several new measures after a sex scandal involving the husband of a former member escalated into a bitter row that meant it had to postpone the award for 2018.
