Five years ago today 19 hijackers carried out
one of the most brutal terrorist attacks in history, resulting
in the death of some 3,000 innocent people in New York,
Washington and Pennsylvania.
On September 11, 2001 at 8:35 A.M. the first
passenger jet flew into the north tower of the World Trade
Center. At 9:03 A.M. the second jet flew into the south tower
minutes later one crashed into the Pentagon, and one into a
field in Pennsylvania, killing nearly 3,000 people.
