After Paris woke up to a nightmare when at least 128 people were killed in a horrific gunfire in the city, some monuments and buildings around the world lit up to colors of French flag to express solidarity to the tragedy.
From the spire of the World Trade Center to the statue of Christ the Redeemer, the structures were lit up in hues of blue, white and red, to mourn the deaths and show support to France.
