    The lighting system on the iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris went dark at midnight local time in solidarity with the victims of the Westminster attack in London earlier in the day.

    The attack, which left five dead, including the attacker, and more than 40 injured, is being considered an act of terrorism.

    Paris has darkened its most prominent landmark in the past, in support of victims of violence, most recently to express solidarity with those killed or injured in Aleppo, Syria, and Quebec City, Canada.
