The Republican will speak Monday at the ceremony in Shanksville at the national memorial to the victims of Flight 93.

London firefighters will gather Monday morning to honour their fallen comrades as the world marks the 16th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks.

On Sept. 11, 2001, four planes ultimately crashed in the US after being hijacked in a coordinated terrorist attack.

Three out of the five buildings, including One, Four and Seven World Trade, are now open and occupied with residents and businesses alike.

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.

40 chimes, playing all in harmony, in remembrance of the 40 people who died in the plane crash on 9/11 here in Shanksville.

Ground was broken Sunday on the final element of the Flight 93 National Memorial - a 93-foot (28.4-meter) tall Tower of Voices.

As first responders, the only thing on their minds was helping others in a time of tragedy.

President Donald Trump, a native New Yorker, is marking the anniversary for the first time as the country's leader today.

The planned route then will take a trail through Lower Makefield and Yardley, with a branch connected to the Garden of Reflection, the official Pennsylvania memorial to the victims of the 9/11 attacks.

After the names are read out at that ceremony, there will be a public observance with a wreath-laying and public addresses.
