The European Union holds a memorial for former German chancellor Helmut Kohl, the first time the EU has staged such a commemoration.

The ceremony will take place in the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France before Kohl's remains are transported by boat on the Rhine river to the German city of Speyer where a funeral service is held at the local cathedral, with Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron, Bill Clinton and Jean-Claude Juncker expected to speak.
