Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was officially sworn in on Saturday by the Supreme Constitutional Court after taking an unofficial oath on Friday in Tahrir Square. On Saturday, Morsi vowed to bring about a "new Egypt" with "absolute freedom, a genuine democracy, and stability." Morsi also became the Arab world's first freely elected Islamist president, and Egypt's fifth head of state since the overthrow of the monarchy some 60 years ago.
