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".

James Reynolds reports.
