SHANKSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — The names of passengers and crew killed in the hijacking of United Flight 93 have been read as bells also toll in their honor on the 14th anniversary of 9/11. Hundreds gathered for a ceremony to honor the 33 passengers and seven crew members aboard the flight brought down near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Moments of silence have been observed today at the World Trade Center site. And there's been a wreath-laying at the 9/11 memorial in the Boston Public Garden.

VIENNA (AP) — Thousands of migrants have decided not to wait for buses and taxis to take them from the Austrian border city of Nickelsdorf to the country's capital. They set out on foot today for Vienna -- which has been a transit point for many of the migrants who've arrived in Austria over the past week. Most have gone on to Germany -- which is trying to get fellow European Union nations to help share the burden. But that request was firmly rejected today by four Central European nations.

BALTIMORE (AP) — The mayor of Baltimore says she will not seek re-election, nearly five months after the city erupted in rioting following the death of a man injured in police custody. The announcement from Stephanie Rawlings-Blake comes just days after officials said the city would pay Freddie Gray's family $6.4 million to settle civil claims over his spinal injury.

PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona state police say they can't confirm that shots were fired from one vehicle at another on a Phoenix freeway this morning. They say there's no physical evidence corroborating a motorist's report of hearing at least one gunshot. Authorities have confirmed that 11 vehicles have been shot at in the Phoenix area in recent days, with most of them occurring on freeways.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama and his staff will no longer stay at New York's Waldorf-Astoria hotel when they visit for the annual U.N. General Assembly opening session. Instead, the White House and State Department teams will work and stay at the New York Palace Hotel instead. The move follows the purchase of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel by a Chinese firm last year. And there have been concerns about Chinese espionage at the hotel.
