US President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are visiting Arlington National Cemetery to pay their respects to US military war dead at the “Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.”

Biden and Harris present a wreath at the tomb in a somber ceremony at the cemetery outside Washington attended by former presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

Biden, who was sworn in as the 46th US president just hours earlier, salutes as a service member played the haunting notes of “Taps.”
