On the US West Coast, memorial tributes were held across Southern California to commemorate the 17th anniversary of 9/11.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti attended an annual remembrance ceremony at the Frank Hotchkin Memorial Training Center of Los Angeles Fire Department along with visiting Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo and hundreds of people.

A piece of metal from the World Trade Center was on display at the Frank Hotchkin Memorial Training Center in a tribute to the 343 New York firefighters who gave their lives 17 years ago.

Garcetti said during the ceremony that the attacks "shook the world" but the terrorists "did not stop us."
