New Egyptian interior minister to rebuild homeland security

Egypt has instated  Mansour el-Essawy as the new interior minister, replacing Mahmoud Wagdy who was appointed by past president Hosni Mubarak at the start of the protests last month.
Official news agencies related that the new minister announced his intentions to strengthen state security, which has deteriorated since a number of police quit their posts and several others disappeared fearing vengeance on behalf of the citizen population.
Essawy announced that he plans to build the homeland security system anew and restore its credibility in the eyes of the Egyptian populace.
