Emmerson Mnangagwa has been sworn in as Zimbabwe's President in a ceremony at a packed stadium in the country's capital, Harare.

The former Vice-President's dismissal earlier this month led the ruling Zanu-PF party and the army to intervene and force Mugabe to quit.

It follows the dramatic departure of Robert Mugabe after 37 years of authoritarian rule.
 
The former vice-president's dismissal earlier this month led the ruling Zanu-PF party and the army to intervene and force Mugabe to quit.
 
Mnangagwa, who had fled the country, returned from exile on Wednesday.
