Candlelight vigil held for victims of terrorism

People who have witnessed or fallen victim to various forms of terrorism joined forces with Brooklyn residents and local leaders Tuesday night for a candlelight vigil.



The vigil focused on the New Year's Eve mass shooting at an Instanbul nightclub, as well as other countries represented in Brooklyn that experienced significant turmoil.



Borough President Eric Adams said at the meeting that 47 percent of residents speak a language other than English in their home, and that it's important to be there for others who are connected to various cultures and regions around the world that have experienced violence and unrest.
