Western lowers flag to honour victims in Paris, Beirut

Western has lowered the flag on University College until sundown today in memory of those who lost their lives in terror attacks across the globe this weekend, including more than 130 in Paris, France, and more than 40 in Beirut, Lebanon.

Western traditionally lowers its flag to mourn the loss of members of the university community, as well as to mark Remembrance Day and significant occasions of national or global loss.
