    The annual Bastille Day parade in Paris has been celebrated in hot sunshine - with troops from Mali and 12 other African countries marching along with the French military down the Champs Elysées.

    The Malian presence was in recognition of the joint effort with French forces to oust Islamist extremists who had taken over the north of the country and were threatening the capital.
