Egyptian president sworn in for second term
Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi has been sworn in for a second four-year term after being re-elected in a vote in which he faced no serious challengers. El-Sissi took the oath of office Saturday before parliament amid tight security enforced throughout Cairo.
His only challenger in the March election was a little-known politician who supported him, after several more serious potential candidates were either arrested or intimidated into dropping out.
