Eiffel Tower goes dark as thousands mourn victims of Charlie Hebdo attack

The Eiffel Tower went dark on Wednesday night at the end of a national day of mourning following the deaths of 12 people in the attack on Charlie Hebdo magazine.

Thousands of Parisians took to the streets again last night to see the iconic tower's lights turned off in what has been described as an "unprecedented display of outrage and unity".

Meanwhile, the search for the two prime suspects of the attack on the satirical magazine - brothers Chérif and Said Kouachi - is ongoing after it was believed they took to hiding in a forest to the city's north-east.
