Watch Live: America remembers 9/11 ten years on

Watch live as memorial ceremonies continue in the US on the anniversary of 9/11…

US PRESIDENT BARACK Obama has observed a moment of silence at a 9/11 memorial in New York where the World Trade Center once stood.

Obama and first lady Michelle Obama joined former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, at a reflecting pool where the north tower used to be.

The White House is broadcasting live coverage of the memorial event at Ground Zero:
