Common American citizens honor the memory to those deceased during the events of September 11, 2001. The memorial events will be held in New York and Washington.

Exactly sixteen years ago, the 9/11 tragedy deeply shook the world and made Washginton declare war on terrorism all over the globe. On September 11, 2001, Al Qaeda terrorists hijacked four passenger jets. Two of them crashed into twin towers of the World Trade Centre in New York, leveling them with the ground. The third jet fell on the Pentagon’s building, while another one crashed on a field in Pennsylvania. The terrorist attacks claimed lives of about 3,000 people.

Since then, fighting terrorism has become one of the key priorities in the U.S. foreign policy. Many other countries also toughened their legal frameworks in terms of public and national security.
