The world remembers September 11 attacks 15 years on

Services are being held across the United States, ahead of the 15th anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks.

The New York Police Department has staged a parade in Lower Manhattan to honour its 23 officers who died at the World Trade Centre when planes were hijacked and flown into the towers.

Democratic candidate for US President Hillary Clinton will visit the National September 11 Memorial on Sunday.

The former senator, who served in New York during the 9/11 attacks, will head to ground zero, the area where the twin towers once stood.

There will then be a moment of silence held when the first plane hit the north tower all those years ago.

Clinton, who pledged last month to stop campaign operations and airing ads on September 11 to mark the 15th anniversary of the attacks, will not speak at the memorial.

Trump’s crew followed suit, with spokesman Jason Miller telling CNN that the campaign would suspend normal campaign activities.
