Cities around the globe pay tribute to London terror attack victims

From Tel Aviv to Paris to Orlando, there was an outpouring of support.

— -- Cities around the globe paid tribute to the victims of Wednesday's terrorist attack in London by flying flags at half-staff, illuminating buildings in the Union Jack's red, white and blue or, in the case of the Eiffel Tower, by going dark.

Three people were killed, and at least 29 others were hospitalized because of the attack. A man driving a car struck pedestrians and three police officers on Westminster Bridge. The car then crashed into the fence around the Houses of Parliament, and the man, armed with a knife, attacked an officer guarding Parliament, police said. The suspect was killed by police.

The Library of Birmingham, in Britain's second-largest city, was lit red, white and blue to honor the attack's victims.

"Tonight the Second City #brum stands shoulder-to-shoulder with #London following today's #Westminster attack," tweeted the Birmingham City Council.

Across the English Channel in Paris, the Eiffel Tower went dark at midnight.

"I will turn my lights off tonight, at midnight, to pay tribute to the victims of the London attack. #EiffelTower," read a tweet posted on the Eiffel Tower's timeline.

"Our flags are at half-mast to honour fallen @metpoliceuk officer Keith Palmer & the other victims in London. #thinblueline," tweeted the Victoria Police Department.

"#TelAviv City Hall lit up tonight in colours of the Union Jack, in solidarity with the city of #London and my colleague @SadiqKhan," tweeted Mayor Ron Huldai.
