Washington, Sep 12 (IANS): US President Barack Obama Sunday visited Shanksville - the crash site of the United Flight 93, one of the passenger planes hijacked by terrorists Sep 11, 2001 in Pennsylvania on the 10th anniversary of America's worst terror attack.
Obama, accompanied by first lady Michelle, laid a wreath in front of the Wall of Names -- comprising white marble slabs where the names of 40 victims of the crash have been inscribed.
The president observed a moment of silence. He then shook hands with family members of the victims. Obama, however, did not give any speech or remarks.
Obama took a helicopter to Shanksville from Pittsburg after flying into that city on board Air Force One from New York, where he attended a ceremony at Ground Zero.
