World leaders to participate in Jacques Chirac funeral ceremony

About 30 foreign leaders gathered in the French capital to participate in the funeral ceremony of former president Jacques Chirac, who died last week aged 86.
Military honours will be paid to Chirac at the Hotel des Invalides in central Paris, where he has been lying in state before his coffin is carried in a procession to the church of Saint Sulpice.
There, the visiting heads of state and government will join French dignitaries at a funeral ceremony. Later, French President Emmanuel Macron will host the visiting leaders at a lunch at the Elysee Palace.

Other leaders attending the ceremony include German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, according to the Elysee Palace.
