CAIRO, April 29 (Reuters) - Egypt's ruling military council led by Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi is planning a cabinet reshuffle to bring Islamists into Prime Minister Kamal al-Ganzouri's government, government sources told state-run al-Ahram news website on Sunday.

"The Field Marshal will present to Dr. Ganzouri a reshuffle to his cabinet and it will include a group of ministers representing the Islamists and other political and party forces in the parliament," the sources told al-Ahram.

Al-Ahram also quoted a senior official close to the military council as saying the reshuffle would be "limited". (Writing by Tom Perry; Editing by Louise Ireland)
