    Christ receives honors on Saturday. Monuments around the world were illuminated with colors of the flag

    The Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, thanked the solidarity of Rio and the mayor of Rio, Eduardo Paes, on his Twitter after the terrorist attacks in the capital of France, on Friday. An image of Christ the Redeemer with the colors of the country has been shared on social networks. However, the picture is reproduced from Christ 2009

    Saturday, dozens of people came to Christ the Redeemer, and with posters and banners, paid solidarity with the victims of the terrorist attack that killed more than 100 people. "Rio Paris Est" - "Rio is Paris" in Portuguese.

    The mayor thanked the social network to all cities that paid tribute to France with monuments illuminated with the colors of the country.
