9/11 victim's son blasts Omar at Ground Zero memorial service

Nick Haros from Ocean County New Jersey who lost his mother Francis Haros in World Trade Center reading 911 victims' names makes comments

Relatives of victims, police officers, firefighters and city leaders gathered at the National September 11 Memorial to mark the 18th anniversary of the deadliest single attack on United States soil.

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump welcomed victims' families and survivors to the White House where they marked the anniversary with a moment of silence.

The dead included Muslims, as Zaheda Rahman underscored after reading names at ground zero.

"There's smiles in between the tears that say we didn't do this journey on our own, that we were here for each other", she said.

Vice President Mike Pence is the keynote speaker at the Flight 93 National Memorial near Shanksville in western Pennsylvania.

Like Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush, Trump is marking the day with the war still raging.

Al-Qaeda's current leader used the anniversary to call for more attacks on the U.S. and other targets. "I know that you're watching over us right now".

"I think an act of heroism just took place on that plane", then-Vice President Dick Cheney is reported to have said upon learning of the crash.

The National September 11 Memorial and Museum, located in New York City, is the country's principal institution for learning about the events of that day, the implications and the aftermath.

The attacks' aftermath is visible from airport security checkpoints to Afghanistan.

"But today we want to honor, and it is our duty to remember and to share the sorrow and grief of those families who lost their loved ones on 9/11".

The anniversary ceremonies center on remembering the almost 3,000 people killed when hijacked planes slammed into the trade center, the Pentagon and the field in Pennsylvania on September 11, 2001.

A rocket exploded at the USA embassy as the anniversary began in Afghanistan, where a post-9/11 invasion has become America's longest war.

This spring, six granite slabs were installed in the memorial plaza, created to honor firefighters, police officers and others who died from exposure to toxins after the attacks.

The commemoration of the 18th anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks has begun at ground zero with a moment of silence and tolling bells. More than 51,000 people have applied. "So I mean, the number of first responders that have died post-9/11 is greater", said Bobby Eustace from the Uniformed Firefighters Association in an interview with CBS Local New York. Over the summer, Congress made sure the fund won't run dry.

The sick also gained new recognition this year at the World Trade Center site, where a memorial glade was dedicated this spring.

The tribute features six large stacks of granite inlaid with salvaged trade centre steel, with a dedication "to those whose actions in our time of need led to their injury, sickness, and death". No one is named specifically.

Another relative at ground zero underscored that Muslims were among the dead. The project, expected to take until late May, includes repairs to lighting glitches in the shallow reflecting pools under the memorial benches.

September 11 has become known also as a day of service.
