Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe sworn in for seventh time

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has been sworn in for a new five-year term in the face of criticism from opponents and the West that the election he won in July was deeply flawed.

Mugabe, who has ruled since independence from Britain in 1980, has told critics of his re-election to "go hang" and has vowed to press ahead with nationalist policies forcing foreign firms to turn over majority stakes to black Zimbabweans.
