Nepal interim government is sworn in amid hope for change

The chief judge of Nepal's Supreme Court has been sworn in to lead a new interim government charged with holding elections in three months.

Cross-party agreement on the appointment of Khilraj Regmi has brought an end to an impasse between the four main political parties.

They had been at loggerheads over the issue since the last parliament's term expired almost a year ago.
