9/11: "Never Forget" the 20 years
The U.S. marks the 20th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, the most lethal attack in history on American soil, less than two weeks after the country completed a chaotic troops withdrawal from war-torn Afghanistan.
On that day, 19 terrorists hijacked four passenger jetliners, crashing them into the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. A fourth plane crashed in a field in southern Pennsylvania.
Nearly 3,000 people were killed in the attacks.
