Powerful Images Of The World Uniting In Support For France

4 min


Another 13th Friday will be remembered as one of the most tragic days in history.

Friday, 13th November 2015, Paris suffered multiple terrorist attacks resulting in over 130 deaths of innocent civilians and hundreds more wounded.

These attacks are related to the ongoing civil war in Syria and the investigation has managed to reveal information about the attackers and the way they performed this gruesome act.

The tragic event shook the world, which rose in support for France and made the countries be more cautious about the many Syrian refugees they welcome with opened arms.

The day after the attacks many countries lit up important landmarks and monuments in the colors of France to show their support and even a week after the attack, many powerful images continue to appear.

Here is a small part of the tidal wave of France support.
