Several topless protesters from the feminist activist group FEMEN disrupted US President Donald Trump's motorcade on its way to a ceremony commemorating 100 years to the end of World War I in Paris on Sunday.
As Trump was arriving, at least one woman ran out toward the presidential motorcade with slogans—including the word FAKE—written on her chest. The woman was tackled by police and the motorcade continued uninterrupted.
President Trump later joined French President Emmanuel Macron, Russian President Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and dozens of other world leaders to mark 100 years since the end of the global war.
More than 66 princes, monarchs, presidents and prime ministers gathered on a rainy day in Paris a century after guns fell silent in a global war that killed millions.
Trump was accompanied by first lady Melania Trump at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the base of the Arc de Triomphe.
France was the epicenter of the first global conflict. Its role as host of the main international commemoration highlighted the point that the world mustn't stumble into war again, as it did so quickly and catastrophically with World War II.
Trump later was attending a leaders' lunch hosted by Macron. Afterward, he planned to visit and deliver Veterans Day remarks at the Suresnes American Cemetery and Memorial outside Paris where more than 1,500 Americans who died during the war are buried.
Trump had been scheduled to visit a different American cemetery outside of Paris Saturday, but rain grounded the helicopter Trump had planned to take, so he canceled the trip.
