Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has announced a major cabinet reshuffle after three ministers resigned over a corruption inquiry.

Mr Erdogan named 10 new ministers - almost half of the cabinet - after talks with President Abdullah Gul.

Environment Minister Erdogan Bayraktar, Economy Minister Zafer Caglayan and Interior Minister Muammer Guler stepped down after their sons were arrested in an investigation into government contracts.
