Ok but the title of AFP video says "Flying inside London's Shard, the EU's tallest tower" so Eiffel Tower is the tallest one.

eiffiel tower is classified as a cultural type .. it is neither a building nor a skyscraper. when people talk about europe's tallest towers or buildings, the eiffiel tower is usually excluded from the list just like how the cn tower (553 m) in toronto is regarded.

My friend, you're on a highrise enthusiast site. You would have better success telling a politician to stop talking about politics.

It depends. The tallest tower is the Eiffel tower, since the Shard is not a tower. The tallest true building is the Shard. Besides, the Shard's roof is taller than the Eiffel Tower's, it's only the Eiffel tower's antenna that makes it taller.

If somebody stands in the right place at the right time could the reflection of the sun off of the shard burn them to a crisp?
