CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin will commemorate the 14th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Tomblin plans to join first responders Friday morning at the West Virginia Fallen Firefighter Memorial on the state Capitol grounds in Charleston. A moment of silent will be observed, followed by a wreath laying and bell ringing ceremony.

Nearly 3,000 people died 14 years ago Friday when hijacked jets crashed into the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
