Trump marks 16th anniversary of 9/11 attacks

Trump marks 16th anniversary of 9/11 attacks”

Following the moment of silence at Ground Zero in NY, family members of the almost 3,000 people killed 16 years ago began reading out the names of those who died in the attacks.

The president, joined by the First Lady, called the occasion "extraordinary".

Vice President Mike Pence travelled to Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where one of the four hijacked jetliners crashed after passengers overpowered the hijackers. The reading paused shortly after 9 a.m. for a second moment of silence heralded by the ringing of a bell, to mark the time when the second tower was struck.

The museum at the World Trade Center bears solemn witness to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993.

The first family then headed to the Pentagon for a remembrance ceremony and the laying of a wreath for the victims of the attack, alongside Defense Secretary James Mattis and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford.

The president is issuing a warning to extremists, saying "America can not be intimidated" and those who try will join the list of enemies "who dared to test our mettle". Loved ones read the names of each person killed in the attacks, many holding back tears as they talked about those who died.
