OKC Bombing survivors return for Monday's anniversary ceremony

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Survivors and family members of those who died in the bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building will gather at its former site Monday to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the deadliest domestic terrorist attack in U.S. history.

Hundreds of people are expected at the Oklahoma City National Memorial to remember the 168 people who were killed in the April 19, 1995, explosion at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. More than 600 others were injured in the attack that caused hundreds of millions of dollars of damage in parts of downtown Oklahoma City.

U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is scheduled to speak during a ceremony that is scheduled to begin shortly before 9:02 a.m., the moment when the terrorist bomb was detonated in 1995.
