A Somali-born former refugee has made history by becoming the first Somali legislator in the United States.
Ilhan Omar, 34, who wears the hijab, was elected to serve in Minnesota's state house of representatives.
The Muslim Somali-American woman becomes the highest-ranking Somali elected to office in the US.
Her election comes just days after US President-elect Donald Trump accused Somali immigrants in Minnesota of "spreading their extremist views".
Minnesota has the nation's largest Somali community - about 50,000 according to the US census.
Celebrating her victory, Ms Omar said she would be the "voice for the marginalised" in the state parliament.
"I think I bring the voice of young people. I think I bring the voice of women in the East African community. I bring the voice of Muslims. I bring the voice of young mothers looking for opportunities," Minnesota Public Radio quoted her as saying.
Ms Omar escaped from Somalia with her family at the start of the civil war when she was eight years old.
They lived in a Kenyan refugee camp for four years, before moving to the US and settling in a Somali-American neighbourhood in Minnesota.

- A new husband got a huge shock after he thought his wife-to-be had been faithfully celibate throughout their courtship.
- Apparently the reason for that was because they were both devout Christians.
- It turns out that after they got married, she was found to be pregnant with another man's child
The new husband said that only weeks after celebrating their marriage vows, his wife announced that she was pregnant - four months' pregnant!
He says that he can only assume that she had been unfaithful, as he swears that he kept up his end of the deal and remained a virgin - as he expected she would.
It has not been reported the nationality of the couple, but there are not many cultures in which this extreme form of 'celibacy before marriage' still exist.
The husband has said that trust has been broken and he is considering opting out of the new marriage due to the lack of faith in his spouse and his extreme religious beliefs.
There are many men in this world who have taken on their beloved's children by other fathers and brought them up as their own, but this is still taboo to others.
It would be interesting to find out the outcome of this complicated story.

A prediction by influential Nigerian TV evangelist TB Joshua that Hillary Clinton would win the US presidential election has been removed from his Facebook account.
Mr Joshua told his congregation on Sunday that he "saw" a woman winning.
After Donald Trump convincingly won Tuesday's vote, visitors to the preacher's Facebook page noticed the prophecy had been removed.
The wealthy pastor is known as "the prophet" to his many followers.
He is one of Nigeria's best-known and influential evangelists - and is popular across Africa, with many top politicians among his flock.
The US election prediction was broadcast on Mr Joshua's TV channel Emmanuel TV, which an individual uploaded to YouTube.
A section of that "prophecy" was posted on the preacher's Facebook page but is no longer available.
"Ten days ago I saw the president of America with a narrow win... What I frankly saw was a woman," it said.
