Local French officials pay solemn tribute on September 11, 2011 to victims of the 9/11 attacks in front of a replica of the Statue of Liberty on the Ile aux Cygnes (Isle of swans) in Paris, with the Eiffel tower in the background. Several commemorations are held in France today to mark the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks which killed almost 3,000 people in NYC and Washington and plunged the US into an era of war.

People around the world are remembering the 9/11 attacks 10 years ago. From Australia to France, Japan to Malaysia, families and officials gathered to pay their respects to the victims who worked at the World Trade Center, employed by companies all over the globe. In Tokyo, mourners stood before a piece of steel from Ground Zero, commemorating 23 bank employees were died that day. A mother in Malaysia remembered her son.
