US President Barack Obama paid his respects today at Ground Zero in New York City, four days after announcing to the world that international terrorist Osama bin Laden had been killed by United States forces in Pakistan.
The president laid a wreath before the Survivor Tree, which was nursed back to life following the terror attacks on September 11, 2001. He did not offer any public remarks during the solemn ceremony.
Afterward, Obama met privately with about 60 relatives of 9/11 victims.
Earlier this morning he met with firefighters from a Manhattan firehouse that lost 15 men in the attacks.
