 French soldiers march on Rajpath during the Republic Day parade in New Delhi. This is the first time foreign troops were part of the parade. French President Francois Hollande was the state guest for the celebrations. Prime Minister Narendra Modi invited Hollande in a show of solidarity with France after attacks in Paris last November killed 130 — recalling a 2008 assault on Mumbai that killed 166. Hollande is the fifth French president to accept this honour. AP
