The KL Tower was lit up in blue, red and white in solidarity with France.

PETALING JAYA: The blue, white and red colours of France's national flag were projected onto the Kuala Lumpur Tower on Saturday night, in the wake of a series of terror attacks in Paris that killed at least 129 people.

"To show our concern and support to France, KL Tower lights up with red, blue and white for one minute every hour," read the caption on MenaraKL Instagram's photo of the lit tower.

It said the colours would be projected from midnight to 7am, Sunday.

The KL Tower was among landmarks the world over which were lit up in solidarity with France.

Sydney's Opera House, The London Eye, Stockholm's Ericsson Globe Arena, Madrid City Hall, Shanghai's Oriental Pearl TV Tower and New York's One World Trade Center were among the structures lit up with the colours of France's flag.

On Friday night, militants and suicide bombers launched attacks at restaurants, a concert hall and a stadium in Paris.

The Islamic State terror group has claimed responsibility for the attack, saying bombers with bomb belts and machine guns targeted "carefully planned" locations in the city.
