New Hampshire marking 14 years since Sept. 11 terror attacks; 10 from state were killed


CONCORD, New Hampshire — There will be events throughout New Hampshire to commemorate the 14th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks in New York City, Washington and Pennsylvania.

Gov. Maggie Hassan has directed flags to half-staff on Friday and proclaimed a Day of Remembrance in honor of the victims, first responders and service members who died in the attacks and the wars that followed.

Ten people from New Hampshire died when terrorists flew hijacked airplanes into the twin towers, the Pentagon and a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. All told, nearly 3,000 people died in the attacks.

Hassan will participate in ceremonies in Manchester and Hampton. Events are also scheduled in Portsmouth, Hudson, Londonderry, Rindge and Boscawen.
