Eiffel Tower is dark at the present moment since the lights got switched off to honour the scores of victims from the huge truck bomb that struck Afghanistan’s capital.
Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo tweeted from the official handle saying “The Eiffel Tower will again go dark from midnight tonight to show Paris’s solidarity with Kabul.” She continued saying “After Baghdad, Kabul has been the victim of a barbaric attack. Solidarity and thoughts for the victims and their loved ones.”
France has been the victim of violence and attacks world over and it is to be noted that it was under attack just before the French elections where all the parties by them had suspended the election campaign. French President Emmanuel Macron ha announced that he would go all out to fight terrorism and ISIS outfits.
No one has claimed responsibility for the attack so far which has struck Kabul’s diplomatic quarter last evening during the peak hours which left at least 90 people dead and hundreds more wounded.
Paris regularly dims the Eiffel Tower, to show its solidarity with victims of terror attacks.
