Current and former world leaders gathered in the the European Parliament on Saturday in an unprecedented ceremony to bid farewell to late German chancellor Helmut Kohl, one of the architects of modern Europe.

Among the speakers were French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and former US president Bill Clinton.
France's Macron said, "In Helmut Kohl we have lost a great European"
Kohl died on June 16 at age 87 and served as chancellor from 1982 to 1998. His coffin was draped with the flag of the European Union, and only the EU flag, out of respect for his reputation as one of the key engineers behind German reunification and the expansion of the EU.
He will be buried in the German town of Speyer later in the day.
