American veterans on Wednesday watched US rangers re-enact an event from World War II during which Allied forces had to scale cliffs to silence Nazi guns.
The event at a Normandy beach was part of commemorations for the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion that helped liberate Europe from Nazi Germany.
World leaders are due to meet on England's southern coast to honour the Allied soldiers who shaped history during the dangerous mission to reach beachheads and fight in German-occupied France.
