In a surprise move, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has reshuffled his cabinet.

Following a meeting with President Abdullah Gul, he named four new ministers. The change comes at a time of critical peace talks with the country’s Kurdish separatists.

The biggest scalp was Interior Minister Idris Naim Sahin, who has always taken a strong line against the PKK.

He has been replaced by the more moderate Muammer Guler, the former Governor of Istanbul.

Elsewhere Mehmet Muezzinoglu has become the health minister.

Omer Celik has been appointed the Minister for Culture and Tourism, replacing Ertugrul Gunay who had been on a crusade to repatriate Turkish artefacts from overseas.

While Nabi Avci has been named as the new Education Minister.
