The Auckland’s Sky Tower and Auckland Museum have been lit up in the colours of the French Flag, to show solidarity with Paris in wake of the terrorist atrocities. These buildings have joined a list of iconic landmarks around the world that are illuminating in blue, white and red to show their support.
Other landmarks that are following suit include New York’s One World Trade Centre, Wembley Stadium, the London Eye and National Gallery in England.
While Paris morns the 129 innocent civilians that were killed in the attack, ISIS continues to release threatening videos detailing their next attack. The latest video threatens the United States, warning them that they could be their next victims.
“I swear to God, as we struck France in its stronghold Paris, we will strike America in its stronghold, Washington,” an ISIS fighter declared in a video released Monday.
