Marseille hit by feather blizzard as year of culture starts
Marseille launched its year as European Capital of Culture with a series of spectacular events across the city, including a blizzard of feathers in one of the city's main thoroughfares.
With a huge line-up of events and exhibitions planned, organisers hope the year will help to project a positive image of the city.
