Egypt changes finance minister in reshuffle

CAIRO - Egypt picked a new finance minister on Sunday as part of a cabinet reshuffle demanded by protesters camped out in central Cairo, and the outgoing minister said policy-making had become "confused".
Samir Radwan, the outgoing minister, will be replaced by Hazem el-Beblawi, who was picked on Saturday as an economic adviser and one of two deputies to Prime Minister Essam Sharaf."Goodbye. The rest will soon follow," one Egyptian, Mohamed Essam, wrote on the cabinet's website. Another, Abou Hanafy, wrote on Twitter: "Let the season of resignations begin."
