Americans remember the victims of 9/11

Americans are remembering the thousands of lives lost in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. This year is the 12th anniversary of the attacks and the tenth year the 'Tribute in Light' has shone above Lower Manhattan to commemorate the twin towers of the World Trade Center.

In Illinois 3,000 flags have been placed in memory of the lives lost in the attack.

The Duke of Cambridge and his younger brother will mark the 12th anniversary of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Centre and Pentagon by joining traders in London's Docklands to make big deals over the phone.

American global financial services company, BGC Partners, lost 658 employees on 9/11 and has hosted an annual fundraising event in their memory since 2005.

Overall, they have raised £56 million for charity.

Organisers are hoping this year will be no exception - all money generated will be donated to good causes, including SkillForce, of which William is patron, and WellChild, of which Harry is patron.

Debris found in New York was from 9/11 plane wing

The aircraft part believed to be from one of the hijacked planes that crashed into the World Trade Centre on 9/11 came from a wing, not landing gear.

Police said today that the 5ft part is a trailing edge flap support structure. It is located closer to the body of the plane and helps secure wing flaps that move in and out and aid in regulating plane speed.

Investigators initially thought it was part of the landing gear because both pieces have similar-looking hydraulics.

Workers discovered the part last Wednesday on the ground in a tight space between a luxury loft rental building and a mosque near the World Trade Centre site.
