Hosni Mubarak, Egypt's president, has sworn in a new cabinet in a bid to quell days of mass uprising against him and the government.
Three former senior officers are included in the line-up, suggesting a strong security presence in the new government.
Mahmoud Wagdi, a retired police general, was appointed the country's new interior minister, replacing Habib el-Adli, who was criticised for brutality inflicted on protesters.
Wagdi was previously head of Cairo criminal investigations department and also a former head of prisons.
