Loretta Lynch sworn in as top US law enforcement official

US Vice-President Joe Biden (L) reads the oath of office and swears-in Loretta E. Lynch (R) as the 83rd Attorney General of the US on April 27, 2015 at the US Department of Justice, in Washington, DCPresident Barack Obama’s choice for US attorney general, Loretta Lynch, was sworn in at her new job on Monday, becoming the first African American woman to hold the post. A career prosecutor known for trying high-profile anti-terrorism trials in New York, Lynch, 55, said she was “honored beyond words” to take over the job of the nation’s top prosecutor. Lynch served twice as US Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, and has come to be known as a relentless federal prosecutor who put mobsters and terror suspects behind bars. Just last week, she announced a 25-year prison sentence for an American from New York who admitted he tried to join an Al-Qaeda group.
