ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - The City of St. Cloud is holding a ceremony on Monday to honor and remember those who lost their lives when the U.S. came under attack 16 years ago.

Nearly 3,000 people were killed when terrorists hijacked and crashed commercial airliners on September 11, 2001.

Two of the planes were sent crashing into the World Trade Center and one into the Pentagon.

A fourth plane, initially on its way to Washington D.C., crashed in a field in Pennsylvania after people on the plane fought back against the terrorists.

On Monday afternoon St. Cloud will hold a service outside the police department on 11th Avenue North to remember all the civilians and emergency personnel killed on that morning.

The city says the service will also recognize and honor all the first responders that protect us and save lives on a daily basis.

The ceremony begins at 4:30.
