Egypt: New interim government sworn in amid continued violent clashes
A new interim Egyptian government has been sworn in, with army chief Gen Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who led the ousting of Mohammed Morsi, becoming deputy PM as well as defence minister.
Hazem al-Beblawi is the new PM, under the interim President Adly Mansour.
The swearing in followed another night of violence between security forces and Morsi supporters that left seven dead.
A spokesman for Mr Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood called the interim government "illegitimate".
