US National Anthem Played at Windsor Castle

The U.S. national anthem was played at Britain's Windsor Castle on Saturday as a ceremony commemorating 20 years since the September 11 attacks was held.

Sixty-seven British nationals were among those killed after hijacked planes crash into New York’s World Trade Center, the Pentagon near Washington and a field in Pennsylvania.

The milestone anniversary takes place just weeks after the chaotic U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan and the return to power of the Taliban, which sheltered the Muslim militant group founded by Osama bin Laden that carried out the attacks.
