RT America -- September 11, 2014

The US commemorated on Thursday the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. New York City, Washington, DC and Shanksville, PA all held memorials to remember the nearly 3,000 victims of the Al-Qaeda plot. RT takes a look at the services.

First responders and other victims who did not perish in the 9/11 terrorist attacks continue to suffer from physical and mental illnesses resulting from the tragedy. While Congress appropriated funds to provide medical treatment, political fighting has reduced the amount available and potentially threatens to cut it all together. RT’s Manila Chan takes a look at the issue.
