BISSAU (Reuters) - Guinea-Bissau's president has named a new cabinet in a bid to end a two-month political crisis that brought fears of a revival of drug trafficking and instability in the coup-prone West African country.

The decree issued late on Monday came hours after talks collapsed between President Jose Mario Vaz and recently appointed prime minister Carlos Correia, the country's third prime minister since August.
