The annual Sept. 11, 2001, commemoration ceremony started with the tolling of a bell and a moment of silence.

The private anniversary ceremony was held at New York’s National Sept. 11 Memorial & Museum plaza on Thursday morning. The tribute has centred on reading the names of the nearly 3,000 people killed in New York, at the Pentagon and near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, in the 2001 attacks, as well as recognizing the six people killed in the 1993 trade centre bombing.

Families read the names of the deceased, pausing during the sad roll call only four times: to mark the times when the first plane struck the World Trade Center, when the second plane struck, when the first tower fell and when the second tower fell.
