Leaders gather for NATO's 70th birthday

Leaders meet outside London on Wednesday to mark 70th anniversary of NATO.

    Before the summit, the French and United States presidents displayed differences publicly ahead of the summit.

    In a final communique, NATO allies will recommit to their pledge to defend each other.

    The United Kingdom is also expected to put six warships, two fighter squadrons and thousands of troops at NATO's disposal to meet a US demand for European armies to be more combat-ready.
