Syria: Al Assad Appoints New Cabinet

Syrian President Bashar al Assad has appointed new ministers of oil, finance, social affairs, labor, housing, public works and agriculture, AP reported Feb. 9, citing Syrian state television. The reshuffle comes as Syrians face major shortages, apparent from the frequent power outages and long lines for bread and gasoline. The former Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs was split in two, apparently so that the new Ministry of Social Affairs can take responsibility for Syria's many internally displaced people. The ministries of defense and interior were not changed.
