--ADUIO AS INCOMING -- ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Mexican troops paraded on the famous Champs Elysees for this year's Bastille Day on Tuesday (July 14) to celebrate the storming of the Bastille prison that marked the start of the 1789 French Revolution. Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and first lady Angelica Rivera were both watching their troops march pass. It is the first time that Mexican troops were special guests at the Bastille day parade. Six falconers carrying three buzzards and three royal eagles, standard bearers and 27 navy troops from the Heroica Escuela Naval Militar officer training academy took part in the parade. French special intervention police were also special guests at the parade for their work during the islamist attacks six months ago on the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo and a Jewish supermarket in the French capital.
