On September 11, 2001, about 3,000 individuals were killed in the United States. The attacks were the world’s deadliest terrorist attacks. Al-Qaeda hijacked four planes, each aiming for a famous American monument.
At 8:46 am local time, American Airlines Flight 11 impacted the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City. Flight 175 hit the South Tower 17 minutes later. American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon at 9:37 am. United Airlines 93 missed its intended target – the White House or the US Capitol – as passengers tried to regain control from the perpetrators. It crashed in a field near Shanksville, PA.
The assaults killed a total of 2,977 people, including the 19 hijackers. There were 246 on the four planes, 2,606 at the World Trade Center and its environs, and 125 in the Pentagon.
