Communities around the world have shown solidarity with those affected by Wednesday’s Westminster terror attack through a series of poignant gestures.
The landmark has a history of going dark to mark sombre events such as the terror attacks which claimed the lives of 130 people in the French capital in November 2015.
A post of the tourist attraction’s official social media feeds said: “I will turn my lights off tonight, at midnight, to pay tribute to the victims of the London attack. Eiffel Tower”
Elsewhere, Ron Huldai, the mayor of Tel Aviv, posted images of the City Hall building in Israel, illuminated in red, white and blue.
Mr Huldai said on Twitter: “#TelAviv City Hall lit up tonight in colours of the Union Jack, in solidarity with the city of #London and my colleague @SadiqKhan”

Council leader John Clancy posted: “The @LibraryofBham lit to show Birmingham’s solidarity with London. Our thoughts are with everyone affected by today’s #Westminster attack.”
