NEW YORK >> The Empire State Building in New York has gone dark in remembrance of the victims of the suicide bombing in Britain.

A Twitter post says the landmarked building will remain dark this evening “in deep sympathy for the lives lost in Manchester, England.”

Monday’s attack at a concert by American pop singer Ariana Grande left 22 people dead, including an 8-year-old girl, and injured 59.

The bomber, identified as 22-year-old Salman Abedi, died in the attack.

In Honolulu, U.K.’s colors — red, white and blue — will shine on Honolulu Hale tonight through Saturday to “express solidarity with the victims of the bombing in Manchester, England,” the mayor’s office said in a press release.

“Honolulu condemns this attack and sends our aloha to the people of Manchester and the United Kingdom during this time of mourning,” Mayor Kirk Caldwell said in the release.
