France honours Mali troops on Bastille Day
French President Francois Hollande has attended a traditional military parade to mark Bastille Day in Paris.
Jets released trails of the national flag colours, red white and blue, above crowds on the Champs-Elysees avenue.
The parade was led by troops from Mali along with French troops who took part in the country's intervention there to repel an Islamist insurgency.
Jeffrey Payment, a tourist from London, who watched the parade said: "I can feel very proud now, even if I'm not French, I feel very proud."
