NEW YORK (AP) -- President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush are at the site of the World Trade Center to mark the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Bush and Obama, joined by their wives, ran their hands over bronze panels bearing victims' names at the Sept. 11 memorial. The twin reflecting pools built over the towers' footprints open to family members later Sunday for the first time.

Obama and Bush later embraced family members and talked to dignitaries, including Mayor Michael Bloomberg, former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and the governors of New York and New Jersey.
