Councillor McDonough-Brown said Belfast had been horrified by the images emerging from Paris.
“This brutal attack is not just an assault on the people of Paris and of France, as it cruelly struck at people as they enjoyed themselves. I believe it is important we show solidarity by sending a message we are not afraid of those who carried it out.
“To that end, Belfast City Hall will be lit blue, white and red, the colours of the French tricolour, at 9pm this evening to show the people of Paris the people of Belfast hold them in our thoughts.
“We share their pain and we share their anger but we also share their desire to stand up against evil. We want people in Paris to know Belfast stands with them shoulder to shoulder.”
