A memorial service will be held on Saturday in American Samoa to remember the territory's 34 victims of the 2009 tsunami.

The service will be held at the Tsunami Memorial Picnic Shelter located at Lions Park.

The shelter includes a memorial plaque with the names of the 2009 tsunami victims, whose families and friends are invited to attend Saturday's memorial service, to mark the 3rd anniversary of the worst disaster in the history of the Territory.

The government has yet to announce if it will hold an official ceremony on Saturday.
