Tunisia election: Beji Caid Essebsi sworn in as president

Tunisian President-elect Beji Caid Essebsi has taken his oath of office after winning the country's first free presidential poll.

The 88-year-old secured victory last week over incumbent Moncef Marzouki.

His triumph means Tunisia - where the Arab Spring began - remains the only Arab country to move from authoritarian rule to democracy in that period.

Naveena Kottoor reports from Tunis.
