Washinton D.C., USA. Sept 11th: Today marks the 16th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people and US President Donald Trump observed a moment of silence at a White House ceremony. The observance, along with another at Ground Zero in New York, was held at 8:46am, the moment the World Trade Center in Manhattan was struck by the first of two hijacked airliners.

In all, four planes were hijacked by al-Qaida terrorists who used them to topple the trade center’s twin towers and hit the Pentagon. The fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania.
