Breaking News

US President Barack Obama will travel to France on June 6 to attend commemorations of the Second World War D-Day landings, the French presidency said on Thursday.

Mr Obama will travel to the Normandy coast for events marking the 65th anniversary of the allied invasion, said President Nicolas Sarkozy's chief of staff, Claude Gueant.

The US leader had hoped to make the visit to Normandy next week, but the plan was dropped due to scheduling problems.
