The first freely elected parliament in Myanmar for 50 years has held its opening session.

Hundreds of new MPs, mostly from the National League for Democracy but also some smaller parties, have been sworn and taken their seats.

The NLD, led by Aung San Suu Kyi, won 80% of contested seats in November's historic election.

But a quarter of all seats are reserved for the military, which also retains control of key ministries.
