Czech caretaker premier announces his cabinet

The Czech Republic's caretaker premier has formed a government to lead the country until early elections in October.
Jan Fischer, not affiliated with any political party, gave the names of the 16-member Cabinet to President Vaclav Klaus on Tuesday. It includes career diplomat Jan Kohout as foreign minister.
Fischer, the chairman of the Czech Statistics Office, replaced Mirek Topolanek whose coalition government lost a no-confidence vote March 24.
The new ministers were proposed by major political parties, including Topolanek's Civic Democrats and the opposition Social Democrats. Klaus is expected to approve the caretaker government Friday.
