Monuments and iconic buildings around the world on Tuesday paid tribute to the victims of Monday's deadly attack in Manchester, England, with many displaying the colors of the U.K. flag and others going dark in solidarity.

The explosion on Monday killed 22 people and injured 59 others who were attending an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena -- one of Europe's largest indoor arenas. The incident is being treated as an act of terrorism.
