Fayyad dissolves Palestinian Authority cabinet

Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salaam Fayyad dissolved his cabinet on Monday  in a new gesture that appears to be inspired by unrest rocking the Arab world.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas announced Monday he had accepted the decision by Fayyad.
An aide to Fayyad said his boss hopes to form a new cabinet dominated by technocrats who can build up Palestinian institutions. He has up to six weeks to name the cabinet.
