Hundreds of people died or were injured in a series of attacks in Paris, France on Friday, November 13, 2015. People across the world share France's grief for those hurt or affected by these attacks. We mourn together and comfort each other during this tragedy.

The U.S. Department of State reminds U.S. citizens currently traveling abroad to register with the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP), a free service for all Americans traveling abroad. Through STEP you can receive important information about the safety conditions in your location. This program helps the U.S. Embassy contact you and connect you to your friends and family during an emergency.

Flags will stay lowered until sunset on November 19, 2015.
