World leaders gather for funeral of France's Jacques Chirac

Chirac was feted by many French people for asserting the country's role as a global player and for opposing the 2003 invasion of Iraq, while a conviction after he left office for misusing public funds did little to tarnish his image.

Among those attending were former U.S. president Bill Clinton, French President Emmanuel Macron, as well as former French leaders Francois Hollande and Nicolas Sarkozy.

Chirac is to be buried at the Montparnasse cemetery in Paris, in a plot next to his daughter Laurence, who died in 2016.
