Today (Monday), the US commemorates 16 years since the September 11 terror attacks, in which 2,996 people were murdered by al-Qaeda in 4 coordinated attacks. The memorial events began at 8:46 AM (New York time), the exact time that the first plane crashed into the northern Twin Tower of the World Trade Center.

Thousands of family members and friends of the victims, as well as security forces who were on the scene, gathered at Ground Zero, the site where the towers stood and is now a memorial site.
