Old foes celebrate post-war reconciliation

Leaders of France and Germany attend event at Reims cathedral to mark union at heart of new Europe.

    It has been 50 years since Germany's chancellor and France's president attended a mass in Reims to reconcile their nations following World War Two.

    This time, it is not Konrad Adenauer and Charles De Gaulle, but Angela Merkel and Francois Hollande participating in events at French city's cathedral to commemorate a union which has been the driving force of the new Europe.
