Sydney Opera House to light up for Paris victims

THE Sydney Opera House will be lit up in France's colours as a tribute to the victims of the Paris terror attacks.

Two church services will also be held in Sydney to remember the scores of victims killed in the unprecedented attacks.
 

How does the Paris attack make you feel about your safety?

This poll ended on 30 November 2015.

Current Results

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.

9%

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.
