September 11, 2001– Terrorists attack the twin towers in NY

Two hijacked planes crash into the twin towers of the World Trade Center.

Thousands of people were killed by the impact, and by the dramatic, and tragic collapse of the buildings. Many more are injured in an almost simultaneous attack on the Pentagon in Washington DC.

It is the single largest terrorist attack that the world has ever known, and sends shock waves across the world.
