Sheikh Hasina Wajed was sworn in for her second spell as Bangladesh's prime minister Tuesday, restoring democracy to the impoverished country after almost two years of rule by an army-backed regime. President Iajuddin Ahmed gave the oath at the presidential palace here in a ceremony broadcast live on television, as thousands of supporters gathered outside and around giant screens set up around the capital. "I solemnly swear as the prime minister of Bangladesh, I will legally perform my job and act loyally to Bangladesh," said Sheikh Hasina, 61, who was greeted with rapturous applause as she entered the palace. The chief of the powerful army, General Moeen U. Ahmed, and Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus joined some 1,000 foreign diplomats, government officials and members of parliament at the ceremony.
