YouTube has changed its traditional “red and white” colored logo to beautiful stripes of Red, White and Blue in solidarity to France capital Paris, following a gruesome terror attack that has led to the death of more than 120 persons.
The world’s largest video site made the temporary change on Saturday at about 1900hrs.
It posted via its official twitter handle, “We Stand with Paris”.
We stand together. We stand with Paris.

A national state of emergency was declared in France amidst tightened borders after at least 120 people were killed in a night of gun and bomb attacks in Paris.
Eighty people were reported killed after gunmen burst into the Bataclan concert hall and took dozens hostage.
The siege ended when security forces stormed the building.
People were shot dead at bars and restaurants at five other sites in Paris. Eight attackers are reported to have been killed.
Police believed all of the gunmen were dead but it was unclear if any accomplices were still on the run after the string of near-simultaneous attacks.
