New Greek Ministers Sworn in After Reshuffle

New ministers in Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras' government were sworn in on Saturday after a reshuffle expelled dissidents from his cabinet and began a new phase of negotiations for a third bailout package. Tsipras sacked hardline former Energy Minister Panagiotis Lafazanis and two deputy ministers in a change that marked a split with the main leftist faction in the ruling Syriza party following a rebellion over the bailout terms.
