SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Today marks the 24th anniversary of the Pan Am Flight 103 bombing over Lockerbie, Scotland. The terrorist bombing killed 270 people on board the plane and on the ground.

Syracuse University held its annual remembrance ceremony at 2:03 p.m., the exact time the attack happened. 35 students from a Syracuse University overseas program were killed.

The service at the Wall of Remembrance will include prayers, reflections and a reading of the names of the students who were lost aboard the flight. A ceremony will also be held at Arlington National Cemetery.

Two students from SUNY-Oswego, a student from Colgate University, and a couple from Clay were also killed in the attack.
