Biden presides over the memorial ceremony for the 9/11 victims on the 20th anniversary of the attacks. US President Joe Biden presided over the memorial ceremony for the victims of the September 11, 2001 attacks on Saturday at an event in Manhattan in which former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton also participated.
The September 11 National Monument has welcomed an emotional minute of silence coinciding with the time the first plane hit the North Tower of the World Trade Center, at 8:46 a.m. (2:46 p.m., Spanish peninsular time). Another three minutes of silence have been observed at 9:03 a.m., 9:37 a.m. and 9:59 a.m.
Later, Biden has moved to Queens and will later travel to Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where Flight 93 crashed, crashed after being hijacked with the intention of crashing it into the Capitol.
Relatives of the victims have read all the names, a ceremony recovered after it was suspended in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Later, Bruce Springsteen has performed the song ‘I’ll See You In My Dreams’.
