Jordanian Prime Minister Zaid Rifai reshaped his Cabinet, bringing in nine new ministers and altering several ministries, the official news agency Petra said. The key posts of foreign affairs, interior, finance and occupied territories were left unchanged. Several ministries were split up or merged in Rifai's third reshuffle since 1985, and six ministers lost their jobs. Political sources said Deputy Prime Minister Abdul-Wahhab Majali, whose job was taken by Education Minister Dhuqan Hindawi, appeared to be the main casualty.
