Jindal orders flags at half-staff for 9/11

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - In recognition of the anniversary of Sept. 11, Gov. Bobby Jindal has ordered flags at all state buildings to be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sunset.

Jindal's executive order says the move Tuesday is "an expression of respect for Louisiana's fallen civilian and service members who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001, and the days since to defend the United States of America."

The order, signed Monday, affects flags flown over the State Capitol and all public buildings and institutions of the state.
