Time hasn't 'lessened our loss': US marks 18th anniversary of 9/11 terror attack with silence, tolling bells

Time hasn\'t \'lessened our loss\': US marks 18th anniversary of 9/11 terror attack with silence, tolling bells

Bells tolled across New York City, President Donald Trump spoke at the Pentagon, and moments of silence were observed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and across the nation Wednesday as America commemorated the 18th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

Politics also took center stage as Trump targeted the Taliban and a Ground Zero family member took aim at comments made by a Muslim congresswoman.

In New York, the names of the almost 3,000 victims were solemnly read at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. Intermittent moments of silence marked the impact times of the Ground Zero planes, the moments when each tower collapsed and the impact times for the planes that struck the Pentagon and a field in Shanksville.

"Eighteen years have not lessened our loss,” Mary Ann Marino said after reading some of the victims’ names, including that of her son, firefighter Kenneth Marino.

The first moment of silence was observed at 8:46 a.m. EDT to mark the time when American Airlines Flight 11, en route to Los Angeles from Boston when it was hijacked, slammed into the north face of the World Trade Center's North Tower.
