US commemorates 19th anniversary of 9/11 terrorist attacks

US commemorates 19th anniversary of 9/11 terrorist attacks
Rivals for the White House have displayed a moment of unity as the US marks the 19th anniversary of the 11 September 2001 terrorist attacks.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden greeted Vice-President Mike Pence at the Ground Zero memorial in New York, where each attended ceremonies.

Mr Biden then travelled to Shanksville, Pennsylvania - the site of the Flight 93 memorial - to pay respects.
President Donald Trump spoke there earlier on Friday.

However Mr Biden and Mr Trump did not cross paths because their schedules did not overlap.

Nearly 3,000 people died when four hijacked airliners were crashed into the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon and - after passengers fought back - the field in Shanksville, on what is the worst terrorist attack in US history...
