Sudan's Omar Hassan al-Bashir was sworn in for a new presidential term on Tuesday, extending his quarter-century rule.

Bashir took the oath at a parliamentary session in the capital Khartoum attended by regional African and Arab leaders.

Bashir won 94 percent of the vote in a national election in April, which was the first since Sudan saw its south secede in 2011 but was boycotted by many opposition figures.
