ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Condemning hate and spreading peace on the 10th anniversary of the 9-11 terrorist attacks, dozens from a variety of different faiths gathered under the Gateway Arch in St. Louis.

Speakers included Faizal Syed with the Council on American Islamic Relations, “Many Muslims died in the attacks and many first-responders were Muslims themselves, like the firefighters that died that day. So, this is a very unifying moment for us and the community around us.”

Following the prayer session, some attendees went across the river and took part in a 9-11 Day of Service clean-up project in East St. Louis, Illinois.
