Paris's Eiffel Tower to go dark for Manchester dead

The Eiffel Tower's lights will be turned off at midnight Tuesday in homage to victims of the Manchester Arena attack that claimed at least 22 lives, the Paris mayor said.

In Britain's deadliest terror attack in 12 years, police said a man detonated a bomb in the northwest English city at a concert by US pop star Ariana Grande late Monday.

The Eiffel Tower similarly went dark after recent jihadist attacks in London, Saint Petersburg and Stockholm, as well as after the November 2015 attacks in Paris and in support of the people of the Syrian city of Aleppo in December 2016.
