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 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. 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.
