"Tonight, our Eiffel Tower will remain dark in memory of the lives lost in the attacks in Paris," the account tweeted at the time.

The tower went dark both in tribute of the 58 victims of Sunday night's shooting Las Vegas and in memory of two women who were killed in a knife attack at a train station in the southern French city of Marseille on Sunday.

"In tribute to the victims of the attacks in Marseille and in Las Vegas, the Eiffel Tower will be extinguished at midnight," the official Twitter acount for the city of Paris tweeted. "#NousSommesUnis" — or "we are united."
