New York City, NY

WHO?

The attacks of 9/11 on the World Trade Center(WTC) of New York were planned by a global terrorist network known as al-Qaeda. The three main responsible men were Osama Bin Laden, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and Mohammed Atef.

WHAT?

This was a coordinated attack led by al-Qaeda. Two passenger airline planes were hijacked and destined toward the two World Trade Center buildings. Two hours after the impact both towers collapsed leaving debris.

WHEN?...WHERE?

These attacks took place on Sept. 11, 2001 in New York City, NY.

WHY?

One of the theories of this happening is that the Muslims were tired of the desecration of their holy cities, Mecca and Medina, by US troops..Osama Bin Laden asked America to withdraw from Afghanistan, but they didnt so he "sent" a message through the attacks.
