In a rare show of solidarity with victims of terror attacks in Lahore on Sunday evening, a hotel in US, the Omni Dallas, has displayed the Pakistani national flag on its facade.
While such tributes are common for attacks in European cities -- Paris and Brussels, for example -- such a gesture is rare when it comes to Pakistan.
In a photo shared by Stephen Goodgame with the Express Tribune, the entire building can be seen lit up with Pakistani colours.
At least 70 people were killed and over 300 injured when a massive suicide blast ripped through Gulshan Iqbal Park in Lahore.
A breakaway faction of the Pakistani Taleban, which has sworn allegiance to Daesh, claimed responsibility for the attack.
