German leader in historic visit to French massacre site

President Joachim Gauck will become the first senior dignitary from Germany to visit Oradour-sur-Glane in France, where 642 people were killed by Nazi troops in June 1944.

Known as the Village of Martyrs, the ruins of the site were left untouched as a tribute to those who died.
