Clinton consoles bomb victims
The Clintons and Blairs visited the scene of the bombing
The US President Bill Clinton and the UK Prime Minister Tony Blair visited the exact spot where the Omagh bomb exploded during their visit to the town.
They then walked through the town's main street, Market Street, which bore the brunt of the explosion.
They also visited Watterson's drapers shop, where three members of staff had been killed, and laid a wreath.
Earlier, in the town's leisure centre, they met the victims of the Omagh bombing, and the family and friends of those who died.
Clinton warns of troubles ahead
Before arriving in Omagh, Mr Clinton put the issue of decommissioning at the top of his priorities for change in Northern Ireland.
"To move forward with a formation of an executive council, adapt your police force so it has the confidence, respect and support of all the people.
"To end street justice, because defining crime, applying punishment and enforcing the law, must be left to the peoples' elected representatives, the courts and the police.
"To pursue early release for prisoners whose organisations have truly abandoned violence and to help them find a productive, constructive place in society."
Released from hospital
Mr Blair and Mr Clinton spent about an hour talking to people in Omagh.
Una McGurk was discharged from the Altnagelvin Hospital, in Londonderry, and sisters Laura and Nicola Hamilton, from the Ulster Hospital, at Dundonald, on the outskirts of east Belfast.
Thirty-four people remain in hospital, three - two women and a man - in critical conditions.
The prime minister's official spokesman said Mr Blair found the courage and determination of the people he met "positively inspirational".
The first person Mr Clinton spoke to was a young girl who had both eyes covered with bandages.
He also met a boy wearing a Leeds United shirt who was unable to shake the president's hand because both his hands were still bandaged.
