Burmese opposition leader is sworn in as MP

Opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been sworn in as a member of Burma's parliament, a month after her party's sweeping victory in by-elections.

She and members of her National League for Democracy (NLD) had initially refused to take part in a swearing-in ceremony due to the wording of an oath.
