Egypt's new cabinet to be sworn in after protests

CAIRO - Egypt's new cabinet will be sworn in on Monday after a reshuffle that protesters said had partially satisfied their demands for deeper political and economic reforms.
A core of protesters, who have camped out in Cairo's Tahrir Square since July 8, said they wanted further measures, including a quicker trial of Hosni Mubarak, who was ousted as president on Feb. 11 in a popular uprising.Mubarak's lawyer said the former president, who has been in a hospital in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh since April, had slipped into coma, but hospital officials and the deputy health minister denied the report.
