In a Twitter post, the Burj Khalifa paid tribute to those who were killed and injured in the explosion.

#BurjKhalifa lights up in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in #Lebanon,” the post read.
The tallest structure was illuminated with the colors of Lebanon’s flag: red, white, and green.
“Oh God, give the people of Lebanon patience and solace,” it added.
Two enormous explosions devastated Beirut’s port leaving at least 73 people dead and thousands injured on Tuesday.
