In Pictures: Three months on
More than 80 countries across the globe commemorated the three month anniversary of the 11 September attacks on America with services of remembrance.

At precisely 0846 local time - the moment when the first hijacked plane hit the World Trade Center - the American national anthem was played at Ground Zero, where the Twin Towers once stood, as well as at the White House and homes all across America.
