ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Workers at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., began Thursday (September 11) with the unfurling of the American flag to mark the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States. Nearly 3,000 people were killed that day when four jetliners were hijacked by militants from al Qaeda. Two planes crashed into the World Trade Center's twin towers, another hijacked plane plowed into the Pentagon, and a fourth hijacked plane crashed into a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. U.S President Barack Obama is expected to speak at the Pentagon, the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense, during a private ceremony on Thursday morning for relatives of the people killed in the attack on the building.
