Egypt gets new foreign minister

CAIRO - Egypt on Sunday named Nabil al-Arabi foreign minister to replace Ahmed Abul Gheit, Egypt's official Middel East News Agency (MENA) reported, in the latest move to purge the cabinet of members of toppled president Hosni Mubarak's regime.

"Nabil al-Arabi said he has accepted the foreign ministry portfolio during this critical time in the history of Egypt," MENA said.
