Photo & video gallery: Thousands pause to pay tribute to victims of Paris attacks

Tributes to the victims of the terror attacks on Paris continued on Monday across the globe.

Much of Europe observed a moment of silence at noon. Here's how the New York Times described it:

In Paris, traffic in the Metro was stopped, and crowds gathered across the city, including at the makeshift memorial at Place de la République and at the Eiffel Tower.

Hundreds went to the sites of the violence, including Le Carillon restaurant and the Bataclan concert hall, where 89 people were killed.

President François Hollande stood among students at Paris-Sorbonne University, in honor of the many young people among the 129 victims who lost their lives on Friday. Those gathered sang "La Marseillaise," the national anthem, after the moment of silence, as did a crowd at the Louvre. Across France, schools and business also participated in the memorial.

People place flowers and candles in memory of the victims of the attack in front of Bataclan concert hall on Monday in Paris. A Europe-wide one-minute silence was held at 12 p.m. CET today in honor of at least 129 people who were killed last Friday in a series of terror attacks in the French capital.

Member states of the European Union were called upon to join. In Britain, the moment was observed in places including the customs line at Heathrow Airport in London, as well as at the King's Cross and St. Pancras train stations.

Crowds gathered in front of French embassies in Dublin, Delhi, and Doha. The leaders of the Group of 20 industrialized and emerging nations, currently meeting in Turkey, also observed the silence.

Later, as the sun began to set, The Eiffel Tower, which had dimmed its lights in mourning, was relit in the national colors of red, white and blue.
