AMMAN - Jordanian Prime Minister Marouf al-Bakhit announced a cabinet reshuffle on Saturday following resignations of three ministers over a corruption scandal and draft laws that place curbs on press freedoms, officials said.

The move, affecting seven portfolios, left the finance and foreign ministers in place but replaced the interior minister and maintained a lineup dominated by right-wing politicians and tribal loyalists.

The reshuffle named Mazen al-Saket, who used to head the civil service, as the new interior minister and Abdullah Abu Ruman, a senior ministry official, as the new information minister.
