Australia and New Zealand mark Gallipoli landing anniversary

A dawn service in Gallipoli, Turkey, on the anniversary of the day allied troops landed during the First World War. As soldiers from Australia, New Zealand, the UK and France arrived on this beach in 1915, they were met with fierce resistance from the Ottoman army, then allied with Germany. After a campaign lasting eight months, allied forces were evacuated. Casualties on both sides numbered more than 120,000. April 25th is now known as ANZAC Day, and thousands travel to ANZAC Cove - renamed by the Turkish government to honour the dead. Across Australia and New Zealand on Thursday, dawn services - like this one in Auckland - were held to remember all those who died in conflict. While in Sydney, thousands marched in the annual ANZAC Day parade.
