Around 150 people turned up for a vigil in Auckland's Aotea Square tonight in solidarity for the victims of the violent attacks in Paris.
Organiser Geraldine Clermont said the Vigil gave French people away from their family a chance to grieve together.
"We all kind of need to talk about it, but we don't really know what to say either - because we can't do much I guess."
New Zealand landmarks are following the lead of iconic buildings around the world, lighting up the darkness in French colours tonight.
The Auckland museum is shining blue, white, and red, to honour the victims of the Paris attack.
The SkyTower and Auckland Museum join a host of iconic buildings around the world to be illuminated in blue, white and red.
