Egypt shakes up Cabinet, appoints 10 new ministers
Egypt swore in 10 new ministers on Sunday in a Cabinet shake-up aimed at improving the government's handling of the country's ailing economy ahead of talks this week with the International Monetary Fund over a badly needed $4.8 billion loan.


The reshuffle, which President Mohamed Morsi had promised in response to public anger over Egypt's economic malaise, affected two key ministries, the interior and finance. It also solidified Islamist control of the government, putting the portfolios of transportation, local development and supply and interior trade in the hands of members of the president's Muslim Brotherhood.
