Angela Merkel has been sworn in for a fourth term as German chancellor, after months of political wrangling that left her weakened.
 
Germany's parliament earlier approved her re-election by 364 votes to 315.
 
Merkel has vowed to get to work quickly after the longest period of coalition-building in post-war Germany.
 
It is nearly six months since the election.  Merkel's conservative CDU/CSU bloc had its worst result in almost 70 years.
 
But she finally secured a coalition deal with the Social Democrats (SPD) earlier this month following a painful stretch of political deadlock.
 
It cost her several key posts - including finance and foreign minister - in Germany's new cabinet.
