Years Later: The US Commemorates 9/11

An anniversary ceremony, held each year on September 11, will take place at the 9/11 Memorial Plaza at the World Trade Center. In line with this, a ceremony will be held at ground zero on Monday, Sept. 11. "No force on earth can break us apart", Mr. Trump said as a warning to Islamic extremists.

The service was held at 8.46am local time, when the first plane crashed into one of the twin towers on Sept 11, 2001.

On the White House lawn, Mr Trump took part in a ceremony to remember the victims and then went to the Pentagon for a second commemoration.

Former Gov. George Pataki, in a radio interview Sunday, recalled the "feelings of absolute horror" he felt upon arriving at the site, but also the "tremendous pride" in seeing first responders and New Yorkers of all stripes rushing to offer aid.

India, however, says that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran, where he was running a business after retiring from the Navy. The International Court of Justice will resume hearing in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case tomorrow (September 13).


The ceremony started at 9:45 a.m., the time that federal investigators determined passengers made a decision to revolt against their four al-Qaeda hijackers, who ended up crashing the plane in a field 60 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.

The Monday anniversary of the crash will be commemorated with a ceremony outside the park's visitor center in Shanksville, where Vice President Mike Pence will address the family and friends of the victims and thousands of citizens who also are expected to attend.

Nevertheless, the sombre mood at the memorial service at "ground zero' in downtown NY contrasted sharply with the resilience and the ability of New Yorkers to bounce back".

The resilience is further evident as reconstruction work continues at full steam.
