T V Jul 14- World leaders attend Bastille Day

Jul 14 - A day after the launch of the Mediterranean Union, world leaders were invited by President Nicolas Sarkozy to attend celebrations to mark France's 14th July Bastille Day.

Alongside more than thirty foreign national leaders was Sarkozy's wife Carla Bruni-Sarkozy who joined the leaders' spouses to witness the colourful military displays.

The annual Bastille Day celebrations in France on 14th July mark the day in 1789 when the Bastille, the state prison in Paris, was stormed by the citizens of Paris and burned to the ground at the start of the French Revolution.
