Russia's Victory Day parade highlights


Troops from four Nato countries have marched for the first time in Russia's annual parade to mark victory in WWII.

Soldiers from Britain, France, Poland and the US marched alongside Russian troops through Moscow's Red Square.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel was among some two dozen world leaders attending the 65th anniversary.

Along with 10,000 Russian troops, the parade also included tanks, ballistic missiles and a fly-past of 127 aircraft.
