Europe Responds to Metro Blast in Russia Only 24 Hours After Tragedy

Europe Responds to Metro Blast in Russia Only 24 Hours After Tragedy

In contrast to their reaction to other attacks, the local authorities of Berlin and Paris didn’t light up city landmarks in a show of solidarity with the victims, a decision which was greeted with disapproval by French and German citizens. Their reaction came only 24 hours after the tragedy and seems to have been forced by the public indignation.

On Wednesday night, Parisian authorities turned off the lights of the Paris Eiffel Tower in solidarity with the families of those killed in the explosion in the metro of St. Petersburg.
