Venezuela's Maduro sworn in as president

New leader has rough start to his term as opposition is granted partial recount of votes.

    Venezuela's new president Nicolas Maduro has had a rough start to his term.

    Shortly after he was sworn in, a man rushed on stage and pushed him aside and the electoral commission has agreed to grant the opposition's request of an audit of nearly half the votes from last Sunday's election.
