Bangalore, June 6: World War II veterans, world leaders and re-enactors gathered this week on the beaches of France for events commemorating the 70th anniversary of D-Day.

June 6th marks the 70th anniversary of D-Day and "Operation Overlord", a vast military operation by Allied forces in Normandy, which turned the tide of World War II, eventually leading to the liberation of occupied France and the end of the war against Nazi Germany.

Meanwhile, RCMP officers in Moncton combed the streets in search of a man suspected of killing three officers in the deadliest attack on their ranks in nearly a decade. The suspect, 24-year-old Justin Bourque, was armed with high-powered long firearms.
