Victory Day rehearsal underway in Moscow

The Russian military has been holding practice drills for the May 9 parade in Red Square commemorating the 65th anniversary of the Nazis’ defeat and the end of World War II.

Organizers say it'll be the most spectacular ever, with Russian troops joined by contingents from wartime allied powers.

Fighter jets will form a symbolic number 65 overhead, while the city's main streets will be closed to make way for tanks and heavy artillery taking part in the historic event.
