Other landmarks have also paid tribute in similar fashion.

City Hall was intended to be lit up in the colors of the Belgian national flag (black yellow and red) in solidarity with the victims of the Brussels terror attack on 22 March, in which a double explosion in the departure hall of Zaventem Airport, and a further explosion at Maelbeek Metro station in Brussels left at least 31 people dead and hundreds injured. Authorities have raised the city terror alert to the maximum level and security has been increased. Islamic State (IS) has since claimed responsibility for the terror attacks. EPA/JOHN G. MABANGLO
