World Landmarks Light Up To Honor Paris Terror Victims

World Landmarks Light Up To Honor Paris Terror Victims2Shares

In the hours after terror attacks left more than 120 people dead in Paris, landmarks across the world were illuminated in blue, white, and red to honor the victims.

New York City’s One World Trade Center:

The top of the Empire State Building went dark at 10 p.m. to show sympathy for the Paris victims, a building spokesperson told BuzzFeed News.

The Las Vegas version of the Eiffel Tower:

Many people shared images of the original Eiffel Tower in Paris soon after the attacks, saying its lights had been turned out to honor the victims. However, in reality the tower’s lights are always turned off at 1 a.m., and the images merely showed the tower during the hours when it would normally be dark.

Instead, a famous replica of the tower at the Paris Las Vegas hotel switched off its lights as a sign of respect.
