#ParisAttack: Eiffel Tower Lit In French Colours To Honour Victims

France's iconic landmark the Eiffel Tower was lit up in the colours of the French flag yesterday evening for the first time since the horrific attacks in Paris.

The tourist attraction, closed to the public since Friday's terrorist attacks which resulted in the death of at least 129 people, returned to service last night.

The operators had previously turned the lights off at the famous tower in honour of all the victims of the shocking attack. Security concerns continue to focus around the tower following false reports of gunfire being heard near the site.

The words 'fluctuat nec mergitur' - the city's Latin motto, meaning 'tossed but not sunk' - were also beamed onto a section of the tower.
