Ivory Coast: Alassane Ouattara sworn in as president

Alassane Ouattara has been sworn in as Ivory Coast's president by the man who earlier denied him of victory in November's presidential election.

In December, the leader of the Constitutional Council, Paul Yao N'Dre, ratified Laurent Gbagbo as the winner, leading to a four-month stand-off.

Mr Gbagbo has reportedly been questioned for the first time about rights abuses while he was in power.

John James reports.
