Egyptian army rejects resignation of deputy prime minister

Egypt's army rulers rejected the resignation of Deputy Prime Minister Yehia el-Gamal, who had cited health problems, the government said Wednesday.

Gamal was appointed in February shortly after a popular uprising ousted President Hosni Mubarak, who was replaced by a military council until elections can be held.

The prime minister's media adviser Ahmed el-Seman told reporters that the military council had rejected Gamal's resignation. He gave no explanation for the decision.
