9/11 anniversary

Bagpipes, bells and a reading of the names of the nearly 3,000 people

killed when hijacked jetliners crashed into the World Trade Center, the

Pentagon and a Pennsylvania field marked the 12th anniversary of the

September 11 attacks in 2001.

at the National September 11 Memorial plaza in Manhattan, for the
