Each year, survivors of the Pearl Harbor attack hold a ceremony to commemorate the victims of the 1941 events, in which over 2,000 were killed.
Watch a live broadcast from Hawaii where the 80th National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day commemoration event is taking place on 7 December.
Survivors of the Pearl Harbor attack and visitors will traditionally commemorate the victims of the 1941 events when 2,403 people were killed and more than a thousand injured by a Japanese military strike on the Pearl Harbor naval base in Honolulu in what was then the Territory of Hawaii.
At the time of the attack, the US was a neutral country, but the Pearl Harbor tragedy resulted in its formal entry into World War II.
