New Senegalese cabinet

The new Prime Minister of Senegal, Mamadou Lamine Loum -- who was appointed following his predecessor's resignation -- has announced his new cabinet.

The main changes are the appointment of Jacques Baudin as foreign minister and Mohamed al Moustapha Diagne as economics and finance minister.

Most ministers in the previous Socialist government kept their jobs.

The previous prime minister, Habib Thiam, resigned on Friday, following elections in May, in which President Diouf's Socialist Party won a commanding parliamentary majority.

Mr Loum has no stated party political affiliation.
