September 11 will mark the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks in the United States, when the Twin Towers collapsed. US President Joe Biden will attend all three funeral ceremonies. Russian journalists were invited, but then they were not allowed.
The largest mourning ceremony will be held in New York. A minute of silence will be announced at 08:46 (15:46 Moscow time). It was at this moment 20 years ago that a plane that terrorists hijacked crashed into the north tower of the World Trade Center in New York. The bells of churches will begin to ring in the city, and the names of the victims will be listed at the memorial erected on the site of the collapsed skyscrapers.
During the ceremony, which lasts several hours, there are several minutes of silence, marking the key events of that terrible day. Towards evening, dozens of spotlights will light up in Manhattan, forming two columns of light rushing into the sky. They will burn all night.
Two more mourning ceremonies will be held on September 11 near the Pentagon and in the city of Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where aircraft hijacked by terrorists also crashed.
US President Joe Biden intends to attend all three events. The State Department previously sent out questionnaires to foreign journalists who would like to cover mourning events. Among others, a number of media outlets in Russia received them. However, it later became known that there would be no Russian journalists on the 20th anniversary of the attacks. They were denied accreditation.
Biden’s predecessor Donald Trump on this day will comment on a boxing match in Florida, writes TASS.
