World leaders, veterans, commemorate the 80th anniversary of D-Day in Normandy

Veterans and world leaders will meet Thursday in Normandy to mark the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings of June 6, 1944, when more than 150,000 Allied soldiers arrived in France by sea and air to drive out the forces of Nazi Germany.

Now that war is raging in Ukraine, on the European borders, the commemoration of this major turning point in the Second World War will have a special resonance.

The anniversary also comes in a year of many elections, including for the European Parliament this week and in the US in November, and leaders will draw parallels with the Second World War and warn of the dangers of isolationism and the far right.
