Egypt's PM Promises Faster Reforms

Egyptian Prime Minister Essam Sharaf promised on Thursday to set up an anti-corruption body and work to end the 30-year-emergency law to placate protesters demanding faster reforms, Reuters reported.

Addressing the nation after new ministers were sworn in, Sharaf said, “In the coming period, perhaps within a month or less, the government will establish The National Authority for Integrity and the Combat of Corruption.”
