Haiti pop star Michel Martelly sworn in as president
Haitian pop star Michel Martelly has been sworn in as president of the poorest country in the Americas.
Mr Martelly, 50, has pledged to speed up earthquake reconstruction, develop the impoverished countryside and build a modern army.
The political novice was elected president in March in a run-off poll after a first round marred by fraud.
