Qatar's former prime minister and strongman was Tuesday replaced as deputy head of the powerful Qatar Investment Authority in a shakeup ordered by the country's new young emir, official QNA news agency reported.

Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassim al-Thani had already lost his post as foreign and prime minister when the new emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani announced his cabinet on June 26.
