The Eiffel Tower went dark on Sunday in honor of the victims of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting.

The iconic Paris structure lowered its lights the day after 11 worshippers were killed at the Tree of Life synagogue in what is believed to be the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in U.S. history.

“Paris and Parisians are by your side,” Mayor Anne Hidalgo wrote on Twitter.

The Empire State Building also turned off its lights but kept its mast orange, "shining a light on gun violence awareness.”


The suspected gunman, 46-year-old Robert Bowers, has been arrested and charged on 29 federal counts, including hate-crime charges. Prosecutors have indicated that they will seek the death penalty.

The shooter reportedly yelled “all Jews must die” before opening fire at the synagogue during religious services on Saturday.
