Washington (AP) To honor the anniversary of the 2001 terror attacks Barack Obama and John McCain plan to pull any of their ads that criticize each other on 9/11.

The campaigns announced their decision on the same day that a group backing community service on September 11th called on the candidates to refrain from partisan campaigning.

The group, mygooddeed.org, wants that day to become a national day of voluntary service and asked that Obama and McCain perform acts of community service instead.

A McCain spokesman says the candidate doesn't plan to advertise at all on the anniversary. The Obama campaign says it plans to stop airing anti-McCain commercials on 9/11.
