World leaders gather for 75th D-Day anniversary commemorations | DW News

World leaders have gathered on the southern coast of England to mark the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the day in 1944 when Allied forces landed in Normandy and began to retake Europe from Nazi Germany. Representatives of 16 nations joined Britain's Queen Elizabeth at the ceremony in Portsmouth, where many of the troops embarked for Normandy on June 5, 1944. Among them were French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. US President Donald Trump paid tribute to the Allied soldiers, sailors and airmen who gave their lives in the invasion. The commemorations center around the veterans of that campaign. Some 300 of them are taking part in the events.
