Hong Kongers and the city’s French community will hold a candlelit vigil on Saturday evening to show solidarity with Paris following a coordinated terror attack that left at least 127 dead. The event is to be held at Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park in Sheung Wan at 8pm.

Meanwhile, monuments, landmarks and buildings across the world have been lit with French tricolours in support of Paris.
