Fifteen years have passed since the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah building in Oklahoma City. A ceremony held today at the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum commemorated the anniversary. Hundreds of people attended the ceremony, which ended with family members placing items on the chairs of their lost family members in the Field of Chairs. Three photographers covered the event for The Oklahoman. Here’s a slideshow of some of our best images, or you can take a look at the gallery by clicking here.

The flowers were later placed at the chair of a victim of the bombing. Hundreds, including relatives, friends and co-workers of the 168 people who died in the explosion, attended the 90 minute service at the Oklahoma City National Memorial on the site where the federal building once stood in downtown Oklahoma City, Monday, April 19, 2010.
