Nancy Pelosi to lead 'us' diverse house

California Democrat Nancy Pelosi has again been elected as Speaker - the third most powerful role in Washington - in the US House of Representatives.

She reclaimed the gavel after the most diverse class of lawmakers were sworn in and as Democrats took control of the House after mid-term elections gains.

Her victory came as the US government remained partly shut down in a row over funds for the president's border wall.
