CLEVELAND — Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine has ordered all U.S. and Ohio Flags be flown at half-staff at all public buildings and grounds throughout the state Saturday in honor of those killed in the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
The order will be in effect from sunrise to sunset on the 20th anniversary of the attacks.
DeWine has also asked all Ohio citizens to observe a moment of silence beginning at 8:46 a.m. Saturday, which is the time that the hijacked American Airlines Flight 11 struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.
