Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah has reshuffled his cabinet and chosen the first-ever woman deputy-minister for the conservative monarchy, the government announced on Saturday. The shakeup includes new education, justice and information ministers, a new supreme court chief and a new head of the consultative Shura council, along with the nomination of a deputy education minister for women's education, it said. Norah al-Faiz became the first holder of the new position, the most senior ever granted to a woman in the Muslim kingdom. Also named in the sweeping shakeup were a new central bank governor and a new head of the Muttawa religious police.
