The name of each of the nearly 3,000 victims of the Sept. 11 attacks are being read at a ceremony at the Sept. 11 memorial plaza, at the World Trade Center site in New York City. This marks the 15th anniversary of the attacks.

Family members are coming forward to name and honor their relatives who died at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and on Flight 93. The event is also commemorating the victims of the 1993 World Trade Center bombings.
