Mahama sworn in as Ghana's new president

ACCRA, July 24 (Reuters) - John Dramani Mahama was sworn in as Ghana’s new president on Tuesday, hours after John Atta Mills, the country’s leader, unexpectedly died at a hospital in the capital, Accra.

A Reuters journalist in parliament said Chief Justice Theodora Georgina Wood swore in Mahama, who will complete Mills’ term that was due to expire at elections in December.
