A number of landmark buildings in Dubai and Abu Dhabi were illuminated with the colours of the Union Jack flag, in solidarity with the city of Manchester, following the terrorist attack there.

Yesterday, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai was lit up with colours of the British flag to stand united with the victims of the terrorist attack in Manchester, which targeted young children and saw 22 people killed.

The initiative emanates from the UAE's solidarity and from its firm position in rejection of terrorism, in all its forms and manifestations.

Iconic buildings lit up in solidarity with Manchester include the Emirates Palace, Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi in Al Maryah Island, Abu Dhabi Global Market, the Marina Mall, the Galleria Mall, the Capital Gate, ADNOC, the Sheikh Zayed Bridge and Hazza bin Zayed Stadium.
