France marks national day of remembrance of slave trade

French President Emmanuel Macron is leading a ceremony in Paris on Monday to commemorate the country’s national day of the abolition of slavery and to pay tribute to the victims of the slave trade. This year, the country is also celebrating the 20-year anniversary of the Taubira law, which in 2001 officially recognised slavery as a “crime against humanity”. FRANCE 24's Luke Shrago tells us more.
