New Delhi:  Cities around the world showed their solidarity with the United Kingdom by lighting up prominent landmarks in the colours of the British flag following Wednesday's terror attack in London. Social media too was flooded with messages of support. At least four people, including a lone attacker, were killed and over 40 injured in the attack outside the British parliament on Wednesday. A man ran over pedestrians with a car then leapt out and stabbed a police officer to death.
