Greece's Tsipras sworn in as new prime minister

ATHENS (Reuters) – Leftist leader Alexis Tsipras was sworn in as prime minister of Greece on Monday after sweeping to victory for a second term in parliamentary elections on Sunday.

Tsipras took a civil oath of allegiance to the Greek constitution, in a break from usual practise which is normally in the presence of religious leaders.
