Germany in forgiveness plea to Poles
German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier asked for Poland's forgiveness for Nazi "tyranny" - 80 years on from the start of World War Two.
Mr Steinmeier and other world leaders gathered in Poland to commemorate the outbreak of war.
Speaking in Warsaw, Mr Steinmeier apologised for the "horrific war" unleashed by Germany.
"This war was a German crime," he said.
His Polish counterpart Andrzej Duda, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab and US Vice-President Mike Pence also delivered speeches in front of crowds and heads of state on Pilsudski Square.
It came as Boris Johnson praised the "dogged and unconquerable resistance" Poland displayed during the Second World War.
The Polish people "never succumbed to tyranny", Mr Johnson said, adding: "Today Poland lives and thrives in the heart of Europe, just as Churchill foretold."
