Hadi sworn in as Yemen president
Saturday 25 February 2012
Abed Rabo Mansour Hadi has been sworn in as Yemen's new president, replacing Ali Abdullah Saleh who ruled the country for 33 years before leaving office in a power transfer deal aimed at ending more than a year of political turmoil.
Mr Hadi, who was Mr Saleh's vice president, was formally inaugurated in the country's parliament today following a single-candidate presidential election earlier in the week.
Mr Saleh returned to Yemen early today after spending about three weeks in the US receiving treatment for injuries he suffered during a June rocket attack on his compound.
He was the fourth Arab leader swept from power by the Arab Spring.
