A new governor has been sworn into office in Puerto Rico, bringing fresh controversy to the US territory.
Pedro Pierluisi is the handpicked successor of Ricardo Rosselló, who resigned amid mass protests over a leaked chat in which he and top aides shared obscenity-laced messages.
But Mr Pierluisi's term as governor could be short-lived as it is yet to be ratified by the island's Senate.
