NEW YORK (AP) — The 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks has started with solemn bell tolls and a moment of silence at the World Trade Center site.

The moment of silence at 8:46 a.m. Wednesday marked when the first plane hit the twin towers on a clear, sunny day in 2001. Then, families of the victims started reading aloud the names of those who died.

Christina Aceto (ah-SAY'-toh) read the name of her father, Richard Anthony Aceto. She says she misses her father every day.

A second bell tolled at 9:03 a.m. to mark when the second plane hit the twin towers. Then the reading of the names resumed.

Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani (joo-lee-AH'-nee) and former Gov. George Pataki attended, as well as Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Gov. Anthony Cuomo (KWOH'-moh) and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
