Abdul Fattah al-Sisi sworn in as Egypt's president

Former army chief Abdul Fattah al-Sisi has been sworn in as Egypt's new president after winning elections in May by a landslide.

Security forces were deployed at key locations around the capital Cairo ahead of the ceremony at the Supreme Constitutional Court.

The retired field marshal, who overthrew President Mohammed Morsi last July, pledged to ''fully care about the interests of the people'' as he took the oath.
