Abdel Fattah al-Sisi was sworn in as president today following a landslide election almost a year after he deposed Egypt's first freely elected leader and crushed his Islamist supporters.

The retired field marshal took the oath of office at the heavily guarded Constitutional Court and then left to attend a reception with foreign dignitaries.

Western countries alarmed by the brutal crackdown on dissent following the overthrow of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi last year mostly sent low level representatives.
