Hundreds gathered at Rabin Square in the center of Tel Aviv early Saturday evening for a memorial rally in solidarity with Paris following Friday's deadly attacks that left 129 dead. The façade of Tel Aviv city hall, which is situated along one side of the square, was lit in the colors of the French flag, in a ceremony organized by the French embassy.
Participants at the gathering lit memorial candles and some also carried French flags and held up signs expressing solidarity.
Many of those in attendance were Israelis originally from France or French visitors in Israel.
Gatherings in memory of the 129 killed in Paris Friday night in nearly simultaneous attacks at six sites in the French capital were slated for Saturday evening in cities across Europe.
