Pearl Harbor attack remembered 69 years later

Planes flew over the Statue of Liberty today and dropped 69 roses to commemorate the 2,400 who died in the attack on Pearl Harbor.

The Japanese launched the surprise attack on the U.S. naval base in Hawaii in 1941, prompting the U.S. to enter into World War II.

Ceremonies were held today across the country, including in Pearl Harbor, to remember the day that President Franklin Delano Roosevelt said was "a day that would live in infamy."
