Washington: US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle on Friday stood on the White House lawn to observe a moment of silence to mark the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

The moment of silence was observed at 8:46 am (1246 GMT) -- the time when the first jet smashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York, where a ceremony of remembrance also took place.
