LIGHTS AT THE EIFFEL TOWER SWITCHED OFF ON 1ST. JUNE NIGHT TO HONOUR THE KABUL BOMBING VICTIMS :

 The lights at the Eiffel Tower  switched off on 1st. June night  to honour the scores of victims from the huge truck bomb that struck Afghanistan’s capital.  “The Eiffel Tower went again  dark from 1st. June night to show Paris’s solidarity with Kabul,” Mayor Anne Hidalgo said in a Twitter post.  “After Baghdad, Kabul has been the victim of a barbaric attack. Solidarity and thoughts for the victims and their loved ones,” she wrote.  No one has claimed responsibility for the attack which struck Kabul’s diplomatic quarter today at rush hour, which left at least 90 people dead and hundreds more wounded.  Paris regularly dims the Eiffel Tower, an emblem of the city, to show its solidarity with victims of terror attacks.  The Rediff.com : 1st.
