Cheney, Clinton Commemorate 10th Anniversary of Oklahoma City Bombing


Oklahoma Gov. Brad Henry, former President Bill Clinton, Vice President Dick Cheney, and Oklahoma City National Memorial Foundation Chairman Frank Hill observe a moment silence for 168 people killed in federal building bombing ten years ago
Oklahoma City has commemorated the 10th anniversary of the worst domestic terrorist attack in U.S. history - the deadly 1995 bombing of a federal building in that midwestern city.

One hundred-68 people were killed and hundreds more were hurt in the attack.

Survivors, family members of victims and political leaders Tuesday marked the bombing's anniversary with remembrance ceremonies and a moment of silence for those killed.

Vice President Dick Cheney and former President Bill Clinton, who was in office when the attack took place, attended the ceremony and offered condolences for the tragedy.

Two men were convicted in the bombing. Terry Nichols is serving a life sentence for his role in the bombing, while mastermind Timothy McVeigh was executed by lethal injection in 2001.
