Greece Election: Alexis Tsipras sworn in as new PM

The head of Greece's far-left Syriza party, Alexis Tsipras, has been sworn in as prime minister and is set to lead an anti-austerity coalition government.

Turning up for the ceremony without a tie, the leftist took the oath less than 24 hours after winning the general election on an anti-austerity platform.

Earlier, he formed a coalition with the centre-right Greek Independents.
