Many of the front pages are dominated by a picture of a father mourning his lost son at the memorial at Ground Zero for the victims of the 9/11 attacks.

The Daily Telegraph describes how families lingered over the names of loved ones during ceremonies to mark the 10th anniversary of the attacks.

For the Sun, it was a "day that brought back the raw agony" of the attacks.

The Daily Mirror says children left without mothers and fathers provided the most heart-wrenching moments.

Reforms in the banking sector and, specifically, the possible ring-fencing of operations in UK banks feature prominently in Monday's papers.

The Times speaks of the City digging in for battle against the "most sweeping changes to banking for a generation".

And the Financial Times agrees that much wrangling lies ahead.

However, the paper says Chancellor George Osborne has left the banks in no doubt that he intends to legislate on the key proposals.

The Guardian says the chancellor has been given a "stark warning" about the impact of his austerity measures in an Institute for Fiscal Studies report.

It says the bleak prediction, of a squeeze on living standards, will be used by Mr Osborne's critics.

Meanwhile, the Daily Telegraph highlights the government's controversial proposals for changes to the planning laws.

It says Planning Minister Greg Clark has privately urged property developers to lobby David Cameron in support of the plans, according to a leaked email.

The Times says the US is to allow the Taliban to be brought in from the cold.

Washington is said to have agreed to the opening of a Taliban office in the Gulf State of Qatar, allowing the West to start formal peace talks.

The Daily Mail carries complaints that the taste of HP Sauce has been ruined by a salt content cut to meet government targets.

It says consumers are describing it as bland even though manufacturers Heinz, who took over HP in 2005, insist the key ingredients are unchanged.
