The Ben Franklin Bridge is honoring the victims of the Orlando nightclub terror attack.

The suspension bridge, which links Camden with Philadelphia, was illuminated in rainbow colors Wednesday night. The tribute will continue every night through Saturday.

The Delaware River Port Authority says the bridge is joining other bridges and buildings around the world to honor the victims. Along with the bridge, Boathouse Row and the Cira Centre also lit up in rainbow colors in a tribute to the victims.

The attack early Sunday ended with the deaths of the gunman and 49 others and 53 people wounded including people with ties to Philadelphia.
