Empire State Building stays dark for Manchester victims

- New York's iconic The Empire State Building remained dark Tuesday night to honor the victims of Monday's bombing in England.

"In deep sympathy for the lives lost in Manchester, England last night, we will remain dark this evening," the building's management said on Twitter. Its website stated: "The Empire State Building will be lit in darkness for Manchester."

The building's tower lights were scheduled to be its signature white Tuesday evening.

A suicide bomber blew himself up outside Manchester Arena where pop star Ariana Grande had just finished a concert. The explosion killed 22 people and wounded dozens more.

Yankee Stadium played "God Save the Queen" ahead of Tuesday evening's game to honor the victims.
