President Trump led a moment of silence at the White House, and spoke at a ceremony at the Pentagon. Vice President Mike Pence represented the administration at an observance at the memorial in Shanksville, Penn., where one of the four planes hijacked that day was brought down by passengers who stormed the cockpit.

Our sister briefing, New York Today, looks at a documentary film project by and about children who lost parents that day. Above, the moment of silence observed at the new transit hub at the World Trade Center, known as the Oculus.

3. The U.N. Security Council strengthened sanctions against North Korea.

But to win the approval of Russia and China, the resolution imposed a modest cap on oil imports to North Korea, not the full oil embargo the U.S. had initially sought.

It remains to be seen whether the sanctions will persuade the North to halt its nuclear and ballistic missile tests. The North’s leader, Kim Jong-un, above, gave a party for his nuclear scientists over the weekend.

4. “A textbook example of ethnic cleansing.”

That’s the U.N. human rights official, Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, accusing Myanmar of a “brutal” campaign against Rohingya Muslims, citing refugees’ accounts of extrajudicial killings, rape and other atrocities.

5. Pope Francis gave a wide-ranging news conference as his plane flew back to the Vatican from Colombia. As it neared the Caribbean islands devastated by Hurricane Irma, Francis criticized climate-change denialists.

He also took aim at President Trump over his immigration policy, echoing other Catholic leaders who say ending DACA — the protective program for undocumented immigrants who arrived as children — will separate families.

He sustained a black eye, seen above, when the popemobile stopped short in a crowd of pilgrims in Cartagena. “I was leaning over to greet children,” he said, “and I saw the glass, and boom!”

9. When Chuck Berry died at age 90 in March, a music-steeped writer got the idea for a road trip. Inspired by the rock ’n’ roll pioneer’s song “Promised Land,” he set out on a tour of the South, and then headed west.

He calls the song “a whooshing vision of the American dream,” delivered in two minutes and 23 seconds, “as the poor boy leaves his home in Norfolk, Va., and takes buses, trains and jets to Los Angeles.”
