US President Donald Trump is attending the Bastille Day parade in Paris, where US and French troops are marching together down the Champs-Élysées, the BBC reports.

The parade – marking 100 years since the Americans entered World War One – also features horses, planes and helicopters.

French President Emmanuel Macron, standing in a military jeep, inspected the troops lined up on the avenue.

Earlier Mr Trump said “the fight for freedom” united the US and France.

Mr Macron travels to Nice later to join commemorations there of last year’s Bastille Day terrorist attack, in which a Tunisian-born man drove a huge lorry into a celebrating crowd on the beachfront, killing 86 people.
