On September 11, 2001, 19 men had hijacked an airline that was bound for the West Coast destinations. The terroist attack was coordinated by al Queda leader Osama bin Laden. Many innocent lives were taken, about 2,977 people were killed in New York City, Washington D.C , Pennsylvania, in the worst terrorist attack in U.S history. The victims: At the World Trade Center lower Manhattan 2,753 people are killed when hijacked American Airlines Flight 175 were intentionally crashed in the north and south towers. The victims in age range from two to 85 years. Approximately 75-80 percent of the victims were men. It was about 8:46am when American Airlines had crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center; at 9:03am a second plane had slammed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center. All aboard the 56 passengers were killed. Speculation suggests that the White House located in the Washington D.C was the terrorist target of flight 93. Al Queda wanted to expel westerners, specifically "Americans". They believe American influence is one of the biggest conflicts to the establishments of non-Islamic governments, We had already knew about Osama bin Laden before 9/11 had occurred because he had already attempted to blow up The World Trade Centers in 1993. This was a horrible and frightening tragedy that had occured in September 11, 2001, now known as 9/11.
