France President Emmanuel Macron announces creation of a new space force command

The Bastille Day parade in Paris watched by European leaders including Angela Merkel.

French police fired tear gas at protesters during a tense standoff in central Paris on Sunday in the aftermath of the annual Bastille Day military parade on the Champs-Elysees, AFP reporters said.

Sunday's violence was the worst seen in central Paris since March.

"Never since the end of the Second World War has Europe been so necessary. It is the theme of this parade", Macron said.

"Acting together and strengthening our capacity to act collectively: this is particularly the challenge that the European Intervention Initiative, with other essential European projects, targets to meet", he added.

Bonne fête nationale! // Happy Bastille day! The inventor, former jet-skiing champion Franky Zapata, held a rifle as he zoomed over the parade route on a Flyboard.

They booed French president Emmanuel Macron as he was being driven in an open-top limo towards the Place de la Concorde, and also clashed with police who tried to remove them.

Television images showed police grabbing one of the movement's leaders, Eric Drouet, as he stood peacefully on the sidelines and escorting him away. The guest of honour in 2017, US President Donald Trump, came away so impressed by the spectacle he ordered a military parade in Washington for America's independence day celebration.

At the 2017 parade, Macron's guest of honor was the newly inaugurated President Donald Trump as the young French leader sought to form a bond with his US counterpart.

Yellow Vests whistled to the Head of State when he reviewed the troops participating in the traditional parade to remember the storming of the Bastille in 1789, popular uprising that was the starting point of the French Revolution.

Also present will be members of the 5,000-strong Franco-German Brigade (BFA), which was created in 1989 as a symbol of postwar unity between France and Germany, and celebrates its 30th anniversary this year.

Mr Macron's European Intervention Initiative is a 10-country coalition of European militaries ready to react to crises and the French-led initiative, which includes Germany, Belgium, Britain, Denmark, Estonia, the Netherlands, Spain and Portugal, was launched past year.
