The Sydney Opera House was among a range of landmarks to light up in the colours blue, white and red as Australians showed their support for Parisians rocked by terror attacks.
Vigils were also held around the country in solidarity with the French after more than 120 people were killed in a coordinated series of terror attacks in Paris. Another 200 were injured, 80 seriously…
More than 200 people gathered in Sydney’s Martin Place, scene of the Lindt cafe siege, to hold a candlelight vigil to remember the victims of the Paris attacks.
French consular officials and expats were among the crowds who braved the rain.
Draped in French flags and carrying signs reading “We stand with France” and “We’re praying for France”, the crowd held hands and sang the national anthem twice during the vigil.
