Egypt takes steps to replace government

Egypt's interim President Adly Mansour is taking steps to appoint new leaders, a day after the military-backed government resigned. Mansour asked Ibrahim Mahlab, a former minister, to begin consultations to form a new government, according to state-run Nile TV.

The former government headed by Prime Minister Hazem Beblawi turned in its resignation to Mansour on Monday, adding new uncertainty to the nation's three years of upheaval. Mansour accepted the resignations and thanked the prime minister and his Cabinet members for their service.
