Facing public anger, Egypt PM to reshuffle Cabinet

Facing public anger, Egypt PM to reshuffle Cabinet

Egypt's prime minister says he will reshuffle his Cabinet within a week, but doesn't say which ministers he'll replace.
Monday's announcement by Prime Minister Essam Sharaf comes amid rising public anger over the slow pace of reform since the ouster of Hosni Mubarak in February.
Sharaf also called for swift trials of members of the security forces suspected in the killings of nearly 900 Egyptians during the anti-Mubarak uprising.
A Cabinet reshuffle would be Egypt's fourth since Mubarak's ouster. The country is being led by interim rulers who are to pave the way for fall elections.
Since the weekend, protest tent camps have sprung up in key Egypt cities, with demonstrators saying they won't leave until they see radical reforms.
