With World Trade site largely rebuilt, New York marks September 11

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 09/11/2014 - 07:12

People visit the 9/11 memorial in Exchange Place, New JerseyBy Jonathan Allen NEW YORK (Reuters) - Until a few months ago, the part of New York City where crowds will gather on Thursday morning to mark the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States had been mostly fenced off to the public. This year, for perhaps the first time since the attacks, a sense of normalcy and openness has taken root in the city blocks where two airliners hijacked by militants from al Qaeda crashed into the World Trade Center's twin towers. The area, by turns a smoldering grave and an off-limits construction site for more than a decade, is now increasingly reconnected with the surrounding streets. Similar ceremonies will also be held in Washington, where a hijacked plane plowed into the Pentagon, and the field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where another hijacked plane crashed.

Convicted U.S. killer Jodi Arias wants to stop representing herself

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 09/11/2014 - 07:07
By David Schwartz PHOENIX (Reuters) - Convicted murderer Jodi Arias no longer wants to represent herself at a sentencing-phase retrial in Arizona that will decide whether she is put to death for the 2008 killing of her ex-boyfriend, court documents showed on Wednesday. Arias submitted the motion after five weeks of acting as her own attorney during the closely watched proceedings before Maricopa County Superior Court in Phoenix. After a lurid five-month trial that drew tens of thousands of viewers to its live-streamed online broadcasts, Arias was convicted last year of killing her former boyfriend, Travis Alexander. Arias claimed during the trial that she had acted in self-defense.
