Syrian government sacked

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has sacked his government in a move to quell opposition protests.

The new yet-to-be-formed government, is expected to be chaired by Abdullah al-Dardari, who served as vice-prime minister for economy in the resigned cabinet.

President al-Assad has pledged to reform Syria’s political system and impose measures to curb corruption after mass opposition rallies. Clashes between protesters and police earlier turned violent, resulting in at least 150 people killed.
