Eiffel Tower goes dark for Las Vegas and France victims

Posted: Updated:

The Eiffel Tower went dark for an hour to remember the victims in Las Vegas and in France.

59 people were killed in Vegas Sunday night, with more than 500 injured. In France, two women in their early 20s were stabbed and killed at a train station. 

The mayor of Paris said by turning off the lights of the Eiffel Tower, respect is being given to victims by, "darkening the glittering monument that crowns the city of light."
