New Chile leader faces challenges

Sebastian Pinera arrives in office following recent huge earthquake.

    Sebastian Pinera will be sworn in as Chile's new president on Thursday.

    Leaders from South America, as well as the Spanish crown prince, are in the capital Santiago for the inauguration.

    Pinera was elected on promises to reduce crime and improve the economy. But last month's earthquake has changed the political landscape.

    Al Jazeera's Lucia Newman reports on the new challenges facing Pinera.
