Nine Eleven in the year 2001 was the black day in the US history when almost 3,000 people were killed in the gory attacks at the Pentagon, the World Trade Center and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Access to the area surrounding the World Trade Center will be limited Wednesday for the annual commemoration of the 9/11 attacks. US high officials and the bereaved families will attend the ceremony.

White House also will observe a moment of silence today. US President Barack Obama also will attend a special ceremony to be held in Pentagon.
