Madagascar president sacks cabinet

Madagascar President Andry Rajoelina has sacked his cabinet.

His office gave no reason, but on Sunday Mr Rajoelina said there’d been failures in government and – “like in a football team” – change would be needed.

The dismissals follow reports of a foiled plot to kill the president who’s a former coup leader in Madagascar.

More than 20 suspects – including 12 from the army – have been arrested.

Mr Rajoelina became the island’s president two years ago – after a disputed election and a court challenge.
