The Eiffel Tower will go dark in solidarity with Aleppo


The Eiffel Tower will go dark on Wednesday night in solidarity with the people of Aleppo, as the ceasefire deal between rebels and Syrian government effectively collapsed. 

Mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo announced on Twitter that the tower’s lights will be turned off at 8pm local time as a “symbol” to honour the citizens of eastern Aleppo, which has been wrestled back by pro-government forces in recent days. 

Ce soir, à 20h, la @LaTourEiffel s’éteindra pour rappeler symboliquement le soutien de la Ville de @Paris à #Alep et à tous ses habitants
