AFP, PARIS

Even with the cuts, about 4,800 servicemen and women took part, along with 265 vehicles, 58 planes and 35 helicopters from the army, navy, air force and other branches of the military.

Among the aircraft overhead was to be the new A400M military transport plane built by Airbus, which was unveiled just last month.

Joining Hollande at the ceremony were UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, interim Malian President Dioncounda Traore and Croatian President Ivo Josipovic, whose country became the 28th member of the EU on July 1.
