CAIRO - Egyptian Prime Minister-designate Ibrahim Mahlab reappointed several ministers on Wednesday in his new government, including Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim, state TV reported.

Oil Minister Sherif Ismail and Planning Minister Ashraf al-Arabi were also reappointed. There was no immediate word on who would take the defence ministry, held by army chief Field Marshal Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in the outgoing cabinet, or the finance ministry.
