US President Donald Trump, French President Emmanuel Macron and their wives paid their respects at the Normandy American Cemetery near Omaha Beach where allied forces landed in a D-Day invasion that helped free Europe from Nazi occupation.

Rows of white crosses mark graves that were decorated with tiny American and French flags to mark the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

Before departing, the two couples talked briefly by the edge of the cemetery.
