President Barack Obama has marked the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, saying the US emerged "even stronger" from that day's death and horror.

In New York, relatives read aloud the names of those killed when hijacked jets crashed at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and Pennsylvania.

Obama laid a wreath at the Pentagon outside Washington DC, and Vice-President Joe Biden spoke at Shanks-ville.

For the first time, politicians did not address the ceremony in New York.
