Just in: French National Assembly burst into spontaneous songmain
For the first time since its meeting on 11 November 1918, at the end of the First World War, the French legislature burst into the Marsellaise after observing one minute’s silence for the 17 victims of last week’s attacks.
Watch here. The silence begins at 00:40 (broken only by numbskull photographers). It is not known who started the anthem.
