The World Remembers 9/11September 11, 2015
TODAY in HISTORY: September 11, 2001
On this day in 2001, four American passenger airliners (which all departed from airports on the U.S. East Coast bound for California) were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists to be flown into the World Trade Center buildings in New York City.
The collision caused a massive explosion that showered burning debris over surrounding buildings and the streets below. America was under attack.
The attacks claimed the lives of 2,977 people (including the 19 hijackers) and caused at least $10 billion in property and infrastructure damage.
