Flowers to commemorate 9/11

On 11 September 2011 four commercial passenger flights were hijacked by members of the militant Islamic group al-Quaeda with the intent of crashing planes into iconic buildings in the U.S.A.  Three of the attempts were successful, resulting in almost 3,000 deaths.

On the twentieth anniversary of the attacks commemoration events were held, including one in Grosvenor Square, London, of which the United States embassy occupied one side from 1960-2018, and which contains a memorial to the 67 British citizens who died in the 11 September attacks.
