No, I will never forget that day. Was living in Queens at the time. Didn't make it to Manhattan that day. My ex was stuck in the city and had to walk across the bridge to get home.

The next week or so, everyone in NYC was really friendly. Bars and restaurants were packed and we all wanted to see each other. One of my professors hugged me that Friday.

Weird, spooky experience.

Bill passed by US Congress allowing 9/11 victims’ families to sue Saudi Arabia could be defeated by presidential veto.

The White House has made clear it will veto the bill.

In April, it was reported that Saudi Arabia had warned the US that it would hit back economically at Washington if the bill proceeded. Adel al-Jubeir, the Saudi foreign minister, said his country would be forced to sell up to $750bn in treasury securities and other assets in the US before they could be frozen by American courts.

If Mr Obama carries out his veto threat and the required two-thirds of both the Republican-majority House and Senate still support the bill, it would be the first time since his presidency began in 2009 that Congress had overridden a veto.
