News Americas, NY, NY, Sun. Sept. 11, 2016: Today, as many across the US and the world pause to mark the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attack, its easy to forget the many immigrants and Caribbean immigrants who died on September 11, 2001, in the heat of the anti-immigrant rhetoric that has marked this Presidential Election cycle.

Yet there were an estimated 110 known Caribbean nationals among the nearly 3,000  killed in the attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. Services are being held across the United States and the world today to mark 15 years since the 11 September attacks.

Six moments of silence were held in New York City today, to mark the times four hijacked planes crashed and the two World Trade Center towers fell.

The known Caribbean victims of 9/11 listed at the memorial are as follows per country. Let’s never forget as President Obama reiterated this year.
