Bombing Remembered

OKLAHOMA CITY () -- A moment of silence marked the first anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing as the city remembered on Friday a day of terror that left 168 people dead and hundreds injured.


Survivors and family members of the victims attending a bombsite ceremony bowed their heads for 168 seconds starting at exactly 9:02 a.m. local time, the moment a year ago when a massive truck bomb tore apart the Alfred P. Murrah federal building.


Many of the several thousand people at the ceremony wept and hugged each other as the moment of silence was ended by a pealing church bell and a flyover of military jets and helicopters.
