The French public will be invited to pay homage to late former president Jacques Chirac at an open ceremony at the Invalides monument in Paris on Sunday afternoon, his family told AFP.
The former leader, who died Thursday at the age of 86, is set to be buried on Monday in a private ceremony at the cemetery of Montparnasse in southern Paris alongside his daughter Laurence, who died in 2016, Chirac's son-in-law Frederic Salat-Baroux said Friday.
