France: Macron attends 104th commemoration of 1918 Armistice in Paris

French President Emmanuel Macron attended the commemoration ceremony for the 104th anniversary of the 1918 Armistice, held on Friday in Paris.

Footage filmed near Arc de Triomphe shows Macron leaving a wreath at the feet of the statue of former French Prime Minister Georges Clemenceau who served during the First World War.

A minute of silence was also held next to the Unknown Soldier tomb. While attendees watched the ceremony from the stage, the pedestrians could sneak a peak of it through a police security line.

Armistice Day marks the end of World War I in November 11, 1918, and it is celebrated with ceremonies all across France.
