CAIRO - Egypt's prime minister promised on Thursday to set up an anti-corruption body and work to end a 30-year-emergency law to placate protesters demanding faster reforms.

Egyptian Prime Minister Essam Sharaf addressed the nation after new ministers were sworn in after a reshuffle that was prompted by demonstrators who have camped out since July 8 in Cairo's central Tahrir Square.

"In the coming period, perhaps within a month or less, the government will establish The National Authority for Integrity and the Combat of Corruption," Sharaf said in his first public address since recovering from a drop in blood pressure that delayed the swearing in of the new cabinet.
