This Day in History: 9/11 Terrorist Attacks.

September 11, 2001.

Masterminded by Saudi national Osama bin Laden, four American airplanes were hijacked by 19 members of the terrorist group, al Qaeda.

The terrorists flew two of the planes into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City.

Hours later, a deeply shocked nation watched the collapse of the Twin Towers live on national television.

A third plane was flown into the west side of the Pentagon military headquarters.

Passengers on the fourth plane, United Flight 93, overtook the terrorists.

The plane crashed into a Shanksville, PA, field rather than its unknown target.

Nearly 3,000 people died in the attacks, the most significant in American history.

Nearly 10,000 people who were exposed to the debris of the fallen towers have been diagnosed with 9/11-related cancer.

The economic toll of the attacks has approached $1 trillion.

In response to 9/11, the Department of Homeland Security was created.

On the ten-year anniversary of the attack, the World Trade Center memorial "Reflecting Absence" was opened to the public
