9/11 mourners mark anniversary under rainy skies


NEW YORK (AP) -- Mourners in New York City are observing a second moment of silence on the eighth anniversary of Sept. 11.

Bells tolled at churches throughout the city Friday and hundreds gathered at a park by ground zero. They fell silent around 8:46 and 9:03 a.m., the times hijacked planes hit the Trade Center's two main towers.

Two more moments of silence are planned in New York for the moments that each tower collapsed.

A smaller-than-usual crowd of just hundreds gathered in rainy, windy weather to observe the anniversary of the worst attacks in the nation's history.
