    Tuesday marks the 17th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks in the US, which killed nearly 3,000 people.

    At the site of the World Trade Center in New York, most of the infrastructure damaged or destroyed has been re-built; but the St Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church still stands in ruins since it was crushed by the falling towers.

    Al Jazeera’s Gabriel Elizondo reports from New York.
