New York prepares to commemorate 9/11 attacks


The US is preparing to mark the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on New York amid controversy over the pastor who has threatened to burn the Koran.

US President Barack Obama has appealed for calm as the city prepares.

The pastor, Terry Jones of Gainesville, Florida, has arrived in New York where he hopes to meet a leading imam.

His plan to burn the Muslim holy book has caused international outrage, but Mr Jones says his plans have been put on hold.

Mr Jones has instead travelled to New York where he wants to meet the imam at the head of a project to build an Islamic community centre and mosque near Ground Zero. (sourch: bbc.co.uk)
