HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy announced on Saturday that the flag of France will be flying on the dome of the state capital in solidarity with the people of France. 

Another flag of France will also be outside of the Governor's Residence in Hartford. 

This comes after the terrorist attacks killed more than 100 people in Paris on Friday night. 

"It was an extraordinary tragedy and a truly dark day across the globe. The people of Connecticut stand in solidarity with France," Malloy said. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the families who suffered through yesterday's attacks. We must stand against terrorism and extremism across the world."
