Tributes paid to victims of Brussels attacks
LONDON paid tribute to those killed and injured in the Belgium terror attacks on Wednesday evening last week, when the capital’s famous landmarks were lit up in the colours of the national flag .
The landmarks taking part in the touching tribute included Wembley Stadium, the National Gallery, Tower Bridge and the London Eye.
The capital joined cities across the world, including Paris and Rome, in remembering those who lost their lives in the horrifying terror attacks in Brussels on Tuesday March 22, which killed around 31 people, injuring 270.
London also paid tribute to the Belgium terror attack victims on Thursday March 24, where a special vigil was held in Trafalgar Square in partnership with the Belgian Embassy and City Hall.
A 25-metre silk flag was laid on the steps and Londoners left flowers and candles.
Special prayers were also said at the Adhya Shakti Mataji Temple on Wednesday March 23 to remember those lost in the attacks in Brussels. Prayers were organised and a candle-light was held.
A statement said: “Wherever there is blind violence which causes so much suffering, we were naturally concerned and prayed for the dead and wounded, may God liberate the departed souls and give comfort and consolation for the families, courage to all those who are providing assistance.”
