British Prime Minister David Cameron has visited the memorial at the World Trade Center after touring businesses in Newark, N.J.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg joined Cameron and his wife, Samantha, at the memorial to victims of the Sept. 11 terror attacks on Thursday.

The Camerons touched the bronze plaques inscribed with victims' names and gazed into the pools of water where the twin towers stood.

They also were joined by Charles Wolf, whose Welsh-born wife Katherine died at the trade center. Wolf said it was a great honor to meet the Camerons.

Cameron was slated to meet later with students in a question-and-answer session at New York University and visit the New York Stock Exchange. His flight back to England was scheduled for late Thursday.
