DAMASCUS - Proclaiming the Syrian people winners in a "dirty war" waged by outsiders, President Bashar Assad was sworn in on Wednesday, marking the start of his third seven-year term in office amid a bloody civil war that has ravaged the Arab country.


Syrian state television broadcast what it said was a live ceremony from the presidential palace in Damascus during which Assad took the oath of office.


He launched into a speech in which he praised the Syrian people for holding the vote and for "defeating the dirty war" launched on the Syrian people.
