USA: San Francisco City Hall lit up in French flag colours as sign of solidarity

United States, San Francisco
November 14, 2015 at 07:04 GMT +00:00 · Published

San Francisco's City Hall was illuminated in the French national colors of red, white and blue on Friday, in solidarity with the French victims of Friday's terror attacks in Paris, which left over 120 people dead and 200 injured.

San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee expressed his deepest sorrow in a statement to the media, saying "We stand in solidarity with our friends in our sister city of Paris, Mayor Hidalgo and with people all across France as they struggle with the aftermath of this very dark day."

The One World Trade Centre's spire in New York was also lit red, white and blue in solidarity with the victims of the Paris attacks. Responding to the attacks, United States President Barack Obama said America will help France in doing what it can to bring the "terrorists to justice."

At least 120 people are confirmed dead and around 200 injured in a series of seemingly coordinated attacks across six different locations in Paris. At least 87 people were killed in a siege at the Bataclan arts centre, while up to 40 were killed in various incidents across the city, including a triple bombing of the area outside the Stade de France and two gunmen attacks on restaurants in the centre of the city.
