Names of Paris victims projected on buildings in Lyon

The French city of Lyon on Tuesday, December 8, paid tribute to the victims of Paris attacks by lighting up the names on buildings of Lyon, central France.

The commemoration took the place of the Festival of Lights, a four-day event that draws around three million people to the city, which was cancelled this year over security concerns following the November 13 attacks in Paris.

Lyon’s mayor Gerard Collomb called for the tribute instead, while city residents still placed lighted candles in their windows and in public squares as tradition dictates.

A light installation is seen on the facade on the banks of the Saone river, a creation titled “Regards” (Looks) by Daniel Knipper.

The names of the Paris victims - their first names, lit up in a giant hand-written scrawl - then followed as thousands looked on.
