Eiffel Tower Reopens, Lights Up Red, White And Blue To Honour Paris Victims

The Eiffel Tower, which dimmed its lights out of respect to the victims of Friday’s devastating terror attacks across Paris, has reopened, illuminated in red, white and blue.
The 116-year-old landmark and hugely-popular tourist attraction was closed to visitors over the weekend, and reopened Monday afternoon, local time, with the brilliant display.
Other landmarks around the world have lit up in solidarity with France, including the Empire State Building in New York and the Christ The Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro.
The Sydney Opera House also displayed red, white and blue – the colours of the French flag, symbolising liberty, equality and fraternity – over the weekend. with similar tributes in other major cities across Australia.
The display at the Eiffel Tower will remain for three nights.
