DALLAS (AP) - Members of a group that believes John F. Kennedy's assassination was part of a conspiracy demonstrated during the ceremony in Dealey Plaza on the 50th anniversary of the shooting.

As "America the Beautiful" was sung, several men wearing T-shirts showing Kennedy's image on the half-dollar coin with a bullet hole and blood gathered toward the back of the standing crowd and silently pointed toward the plaza's "grassy knoll."

The T-shirts include the slogan "50 years in denial is enough."

The group usually gathers on the "grassy knoll" for a moment of silence at 12:30 p.m. Some members gathered a few blocks away for their own ceremony.
