Correction appended, July 15
In the wake of an attack on the southern French city of Nice, when a driver smashed into crowds of people celebrating the country’s national holiday, buildings all over the world lit up to show solidarity with France, radiating the blue, white and red of the nation’s flag.
In Dallas, the Omni Hotel lit up with a giant French tricolor emblazoned on its facade as a tribute to those in Nice, where at least 84 people have died. The Texas city is reeling from a sniper attack last week that killed five police officers at a peaceful protest against the deaths of two black men by police. Buildings in Australia, Canada, Mexico and Saudi Arabia were also illuminated.
Correction: The original version of this story misstated two of the buildings that lit up Friday in support of the victims in Nice. Buildings that were illuminated included Montreal’s City Hall, Mexico City’s Angel of Independence and Brisbane’s City Hall in Australia.
