Tunisia premier names new cabinet for caretaker government

Tunisian Prime Minister "Mehdi Jomaa" named today a new caretaker cabinet to govern until elections in one of the last steps to democracy three years after the uprising against Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali.

Jomaa, a technocrat, was appointed in December after ruling Islamists agreed to step down in a deal with secular opponents to end a political crisis.

He named Hakim Ben Hammouda, an economist with experience at the African Development Bank, as finance minister and Mongi Hamdi, a former U.N official, as his foreign minister.
