PARIS: The Eiffel Tower will light up in red and white, the colours of the Turkish flag, on Thursday in homage to the 42 people killed in the attack on Istanbul’s airport, Paris city hall said.

The gesture will underscore “the steadfast support of the city of Paris for the victims, their loved ones and all of the Turkish people,” first deputy mayor Bruno Julliard told reporters.

Shortly after the attack on Tuesday, Mayor Anne Hildalgo said that “this new terrorist attack, like all those before it, targeted humanity itself through the innocent lives that it destroyed.”

“It should find us united and sure of our values in the face of those who have none,” she added in a statement.
