"Tonight, at midnight, Paris will extinguish the lights of the Eiffel Tower in tribute to the victims of the bombing of St. Petersburg," Hidalgo tweeted.
The blast ripped through an underground train in St. Petersburg, Russia's second-largest city, on Monday afternoon, killing 14 and injuring nearly 50 people. The attack was carried out by a suicide bomber.
