  Future Iraqi prime minister named
Updated 28 May 2004, 21.15
Iyad Allawi
The man who will become prime minister of Iraq when the US hands over control of the country has been named.

He is a British-educated doctor called Iyad Allawi. His government will come to power on 30 June and will lead the country until elections in 2005.

Mr Allawi, a Shia Muslim, left Iraq after turning against Saddam Hussein in the 1970s. He survived an assassination attempt in 1978 while living in London.

A 30-strong team of people is being selected to form the new government.

It will also include a president, two vice presidents and 26 ministers.
