In September 11, 2001, the biggest terrorist attack took place in the USA. With almost simultaneous disasters in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania, more than 3,000 people were killed and many more injured.

Today, as we mark 8 years from that dark day in history, moments of silence were taken in the cities affected by the terrorist attacks.


In Washington, President Barrack Obama, along with the first lady and the White House staff took part of a moment of silence on the South Lawn. The moment was taken at 8:46 a.m. Exactly 8 years ago, the American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into World Trade Center’s north tower. Another similar event is expected later at the Pentagon, where president Obama will participate in memory of the 184 people that were killed when the Pentagon’s west wall was struck by American Airlines Flight 77.

Another moment of silence was observed at 9:03 am in New York, the exact time when the United Airlines Flight 175 crashed into the World Trade Center. The 40 passengers and crew of the United Airlines Flight 93 were also remembered in Shanksville, where the hijacked plane crashed into a field as a possible result of the passengers’ intervention to stop the terrorists. A 9/11 ceremony was held there just before 10 am.
