Americans remember victims of 9/11 terror attacks
New York: Americans are commemorating the 9/11 terror attacks with somber tributes, volunteer projects and a new monument to victims today.
Thousands of victims’ relatives, survivors, rescuers and others are expected at Tuesday’s ceremony at the World Trade Center to mark the 17th anniversary of the terror attack.
President Donald Trump and his wife Melania are to participate in sombre remembrance in Shanksville, where hijackers crashed a California-bound commercial airliner on this day of 2001.
Nearly 3,000 people were killed on Sept. 11, 2001, when hijackers flew commercial airplanes into New York’s World Trade Center, the Pentagon and the Pennsylvania field in what was the worst terrorist attack on US soil.
