|1. Americans commemorate 9/11 after 15 years
Sunday marks the 15th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, that killed nearly 3,000 people in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The day will be commemorated with special services at each of the places the four hijacked planes were crashed, with President Obama speaking at the ceremony at the Pentagon, which may be viewed online via the Department of Defense. Presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are expected to visit Ground Zero in Manhattan, where the family members of 9/11 victims will read aloud every name of those who died, pausing six times to mark the four plane crashes and the fall of the two World Trade Center towers.
