9/11 anniversary: Tribute in Light ceremony to mark 20 years since terror attacks in NYC | LIVE
CA, 12 Sep 2021
The Tribute in Light ceremony will brighten the night sky over New York City on Saturday night as a tribute to the victims killed in terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
Today, New Yorkers and those across the United States, and the world, mark 20 years since the attacks, which led to a nearly 20 year war in Afghanistan—part of America's war on terror and it's response to the tragedy of that day.
The 20th anniversary comes just over a week after the U.S. wrapped up it's war in Afghanistan, pulling military troops out of the country as it fell back under Taliban control.
Nearly 3,000 people were killed in what was the deadliest terrorist assault on United States soil.
