Roch Marc Kabore has been sworn-in as Burkina Faso's president on Tuesday, making the former prime minister the country's first new leader in decades following his election in November.

The ceremony conducted at a stadium in the capital marks a pivotal moment in a democratic transition in the West African country after veteran leader Blaise Compaore was overthrown in a popular uprising in October 2014.
