Families stands at flag-draped coffins as tribute is paid by France to the seven French soldiers killed last week in Afghanistan during a national ceremony in Paris, Tuesday, July 19, 2011. France's president and military leadership paid homage to seven soldiers killed in Afghanistan as the country prepares to wind down its decade-long Afghan operation. Last week was one of the deadliest for French troops since the operation began in 2001. The seven soldiers killed were honored Tuesday in a somber funeral ceremony at the site of Napoleon's tomb in central Paris. (AP Photo/Jacques Brinon) less
