|The September 11, 2001 attacks
(often referred to as 9/11—pronounced "nine eleven") consisted
of a series of coordinated terrorist suicide attacks by Islamic extremists
on that date upon the United States of America.
That morning nineteen
terrorists affiliated with al-Qaeda hijacked four commercial passenger jet
airliners. Each team of hijackers included a trained pilot. The hijackers
intentionally crashed two of the airliners (United Airlines Flight 175 and
American Airlines Flight 11) into the World Trade Center in New York City,
one plane into each tower (1 WTC and 2 WTC), resulting in the collapse of
both buildings soon afterward and irreparable damage to nearby buildings.
The hijackers crashed a third airliner (American Airlines Flight 77) into
the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia, near Washington, D.C. Passengers
and members of the flight crew on the fourth aircraft (United Airlines
Flight 93) attempted to retake control of their plane from the hijackers;
that plane crashed into a field near the town of Shanksville in rural
Somerset County, Pennsylvania. In addition to the 19 hijackers, 2,974 people
died as an immediate result of the attacks, and the death of at least one
person from lung disease was ruled by a medical examiner to be a result of
exposure to WTC dust. Another 24 people are missing and presumed dead. The
victims were predominantly civilians. For more on
