Egypt's new Cabinet is sworn in by newly elected President el-Sissi

Egypt's newly elected President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi has sworn in the country's new Cabinet.

The ceremony took place on Tuesday morning in the capital, Cairo. State television aired live footage from the swearing-in inside the presidential palace.

The government of about 30 ministers is led by Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahlab. The Cabinet also includes four women and several technocrats.

It's the first Cabinet under el-Sissi, the country's former army chief and defense minister who last July led the ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi.
