Victims' relatives have been marking the 14th anniversary of the September 11 attacks in a subdued gathering at Ground Zero in New York with a moment of silence and sombre reading of names.

Hundreds of relatives gathered, carrying photos emblazoned with the names of their loved ones as they remembered the day when hijacked planes hit the World Trade Center's twin towers, the Pentagon and a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Meanwhile, a Florida man has been charged with trying to help plan an attack on an upcoming 9/11 memorial in the US.

Joshua Ryne Goldberg (20) was arrested and charged with distributing information relating to explosives, destructive devices and weapons of mass destruction.
