Jerry Brown sworn in as new California governor

Jerry Brown has been sworn in as the new governor of the US state of California, taking over from the departing Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Mr Brown, a Democrat who also served as California's governor from 1975 to 1983, becomes only the second person to lead the state for three terms.

The new governor said the year ahead would "demand courage and sacrifice" if California was to overcome its fiscal problems. Rajesh Mirchandani reports.
