European countries are starting commemorations of the centenary of the end of World War I.

French President Emmanuel Macron received German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier on Sunday (November 4) for a concert at Notre Dame Cathedral in Strasbourg.

Later this week, Macron is due to visit former battlefields in France to honour those who died during the war.

On November 11th – the official end of the war – Macron will host an international ceremony in Paris.

In Britain, ten thousand torches lit the moat of the Tower of London in an act of collective remembrance. Inaugurated with a rendition of The Last Post sounding from one of the towers, the display will run for eight nights, leading up to the Armistice day.

In Italy, President Sergio Mattarella laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Rome.
