BEIRUT - Syrian President Bashar Assad formed a new government on Saturday, but kept on the heads of its interior, defense and foreign ministries, state television reported.

The reappointment of Defense Minister Daoud Rajha will quash widespread rumors previously denied by the government that Rajha had been assassinated by rebels who are struggling to bring down Assad's rule.
