The September 11 Memorial and Museum opened exclusively for family members at 7 a.m., bearing solemn witness to the attacks of that fateful day, those who died and the people who risked their lives to save others.

343 firefighters were killed in NY.

The September 11th attacks left 2,996 people dead and more than 6,000 others wounded - including 184 at the Pentagon, as well as the five hijackers.

Ceremonies will be held at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and at the crash site of Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

The 16th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks was observed in NY and Washington, D.C.in services honoring the 2,983 men, women and children killed in the attacks at the World Trade Center site, the Pentagon, aboard Flight 93, and those who died in the February 26, 1993 WTC bombing.

President Donald Trump too paid homage to the victims and warned that "savage killers" who threaten the United States will find no haven on earth.

Yet last year's 15th-anniversary ceremony became entangled in the narrative of a fractious presidential campaign when Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton left abruptly, stumbled into a van and ultimately revealed she'd been diagnosed days earlier with pneumonia.

Trump and his wife also are to pay their respects at a Pentagon observance.

US President Donald Trump, a native of NY, will be observing the anniversary for the first time as the nation's leader and is scheduled to observe the moment of silence at about the same time the first airplane crashed into the building.

Vice President Mike Pence will attend a memorial in Pennsylvania. She is making a documentary about the children who lost parents in the attacks.
