Austria's first conservative-Green government sworn in

Vienna, Jan 7 (AFP) Austrian conservative Sebastian Kurz was sworn in Tuesday as the world's youngest democratically elected leader heading an unlikely coalition with the Greens.

Kurz, 33, took the oath of office as chancellor in front of President Alexander Van der Bellen. His government ministers -- 10 from the conservatives and four from the Greens -- were also to be sworn in.
