General Raheel Sharif formally took over as the 15th head of the Pakistan army on Friday, arguably the most powerful position in the troubled country. In a change of command ceremony held at the army stadium in the garrison city of Rawalpindi, outgoing leader General Ashfaq Kayani handed over the baton of command to Sharif. Kayani, known as the "quiet general of Pakistan", faced the challenges of the fight against the Pakistani Taliban during his six-year tenure.
