South Korea's first female president sworn in

The daughter of South Korea's former dictator Park Chung-hee has made history after she was inaugurated as the country's first woman president.

Park Geun-hye, 60, defeated her liberal rival Moon Jae-in back in December.

She has witnessed some of South Korea's most turbulent times from her home inside the presidential Blue House, as Lucy Williamson reports.
