Thousands of bikers rode through the streets of Washington, D.C. Wednesday to honor victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and protest a Muslim march that had been planned.
The noon rally sponsored by the American muslim Political Action Committee drew only a few dozen demonstrators, with keynote speakers calling for peace. A moment of silence for the victims of the Sept. 11 attacks was disrupted by motorcycles, organizers said.
