On a day marked by sadness, the United States commemorated the twentieth anniversary of the attacks of September 11, 2001.

That day, 20 years ago, four planes were hijacked and crashed into the World Trade Center in New York, a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and the Pentagon building in Washington, in coordinated attacks by the Islamic extremist group al Qaeda.

This Saturday, in several cities of the country, hundreds of people gathered to pay tribute to the 2,977 victims of the attacks.

The photos speak volumes of the collective mood.
