Haiti PM replaces interior minister, 5 other Cabinet posts

Haiti's prime minister is shaking up his Cabinet, replacing the interior minister who is in charge of domestic security.

Out is Ronsard St. Cyr. The new interior minister is David Bazile, who was security chief for the interim government that followed the 2004 ouster of two-time President Jean-Bertrand Aristide.

Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe named new ministers of culture, sports, communications, among others. It's the second sizable shake-up since Lamothe took office in May under President Michel Martelly.

The government's statement issued Wednesday morning didn't say why the changes were needed.
