Kentucky Governor orders flags to half-staff

FRANKFORT, KY (KFVS) -

Governor Steve Beshear has directed that flags at all Kentucky state office buildings be lowered to half-staff to honor the victims of last week's terrorist attacks in Paris.

The governor is encouraging individuals, businesses, organizations and government agencies to join in the tribute through sunset on Thursday.

"Through acts of support such as this, we join the rest of the world in standing with the people of France, and demonstrating that this unspeakable violence will never be tolerated," Beshear said.
