Iran’s re-elected President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad dismissed on Sunday the intelligence and culture ministers.

The semi-official Mehr news agency quoted an unnamed source as saying that the two ministers had a dispute with the hardline president over the appointment of Esfandiar Rahim Mashaie as first vice-president for his second four-year term.

An official at the presidential office said he could only confirm the intelligence minister's dismissal.
