New Egypt cabinet sworn in

PLEASE NOTE: THIS EDIT CONTAINS CONVERTED 4:3 MATERIAL (ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Egypt's new cabinet was sworn in by newly-elected President Mohammed Mursi at a ceremony in Cairo on Thursday (August 2). Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi kept his post as Egyptian defence minister in a Muslim Brotherhood-led administration, confirming the military's role at the epicentre of power. Tantawi's inclusion in Prime Minister Hisham Kandil's cabinet was widely expected, but underlined the emerging power balance between a civilian president from a once-banned Islamist group and the generals who removed Hosni Mubarak from power. Other holdovers include Foreign Minister Mohammed Kamel Amr, Finance Minister Mumtaz al-Said, Military Production Minister Ali Ibrahim Sabry, Social Affairs Minister Nagwa Khalil , Antiquities Minister Mohamed Ibrahim Ali said, and Scientific Research Minister Nadia Zakhary. Four ministers from President Mursi's Muslim Brotherhood were given posts in higher education, housing, youth and information. The new cabinet replaces one led by Prime Minister Kamal al-Ganzouri, a premier under Mubarak and appointed by the military council late last year.
