BEIRUT — Syrian state-run news agency SANA says President Bashar Assad has appointed a new prime minister to replace one who defected this week to neighbouring Jordan.
Assad appointed Wael Nader al-Halqi, elevating him from the post of health minister.
Halqi is a member of Assad's ruling Baath party and hails from the southern city of Daraa, birthplace of the Syrian uprising.
