Ashraf Ghani inaugurated as Afghan president

Afghan President-elect Ashraf Ghani is set to be inaugurated in a ceremony at the presidential palace in Kabul.

It comes after six months of deadlock amid a bitter dispute over electoral fraud and a recount of votes.

Under a US-brokered unity deal Mr Ghani got the presidency and runner-up Abdullah Abdullah can nominate a figure with prime-ministerial powers.
