AMMAN(Reuters) - Jordan's King Abdullah on Sunday (Jan 15) swore in a new government following a reshuffle but retained Hani Mulki as prime minister, state television reported.

The second reshuffle since Mr Mulki was appointed last May was intended to give him more scope for economic reforms and to tackle security threats, officials said.
