18 years later, the world remembers 9/11

Tributes are paid to the people who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.

A moment of silence was observed at 8:46 a.m. ET to mark the time the first plane hit – American Airlines Flight 11, flying from Boston to Los Angeles, had been hijacked before slamming into the north face of the North Tower.

President Donald Trump joined a moment of silence on the South Lawn of the White House. He was joined by hundreds of guests that included 9/11 survivors and family members and current and former law enforcement personnel.
