11 September – On this day

Suicide hijackers crashed two jets into the world trade center

killing almost 3,000 people and injuring in excess of 6,000. These attacks were part of four co-ordinated terror attacks by Al-Qaeda. Both 110 story towers were destroyed in the attack. A third plane was crashed into the Pentagon and a fourth plane crashed into a field at Shanksville as a result of the passengers’ attempts to take the plane back from the hijackers.
