Barack Obama has taken oath as the 44th President of the United States, fulfilling his dream and making history as the first African-American President of the United States.

In his inaugural address, Obama said "the challenges we face are real but they will be met. We must begin the work of remaking America."
To witness the historical moment, millions gathered in Washington DC. Crowds thronged Pensylvania Avenue near the White House and along the National Mall in front of the Capitol Hill where Obama took oath.
