No different. These were isolated extremists who want us to feel scared. I won't let them win.

28%

A little unsafe. This could happen anywhere, with any target.

26%

Really worried. I don't think Australia is prepared for an attack like this.

35%

It makes me less likely to visit Europe, but I feel safe here.

This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.

Auckland's Sky Tower will also be lit by the colours of the French flag to show solidarity with Paris in the wake of today's terrorist attacks.

It will join a host of iconic buildings around the world to be illuminated in blue, white and red.

The Eiffel Tower has now gone dark in memory of the terror victims.

The spire of New York's One World Trade Centre was also lit in the tricolore today, as was Wembley Stadium in England and the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
