D-Day Veterans join world leaders to celebrate 70th anniversary of D-day landing at Normandy

World leaders have gathered in Normandy to celebrate the 70th anniversary of D-Day landing on 6th June, beside a number veterans who actually participated in the landing on that fateful day of 6th June 1944.

Day of remembrance and celebration started at 12.16am at Pegasus Bridge, where the first troops landed. The British Queen met the veterans and saluted the 'immense and heroic' endeavour of them and their comrades 70 years ago.

Ten miles away U.S. President Barack Obama spoke at the American War Cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer where almost 10,000 U.S troops who died in the Second World War are buried.'
