Paris' Ganesh festival in pictures

Floats paraded down the streets of central Paris on Sunday to celebrate the annual Ganesh festival. The parade celebrates the Hindu deity which is represented with the body of a man and the head of an elephant. The procession route, in the 10th district of Paris, is home to a growing Sri Lankan Tamil community and is sometimes referred to as Little Jaffna.
