World Trade Center, Pentagon Hit


A series of kamikaze-like attacks on the World Trade Center buildings in New York and on the Pentagon have caused massive destruction and the grounding of all aircraft nationwide by the Federal Aviation Authority. Both towers of the World Trade Center were hit Tuesday morning by apparently hijacked airplanes in what President Bush immediately called a terrorist attack. The Pentagon in Washington was hit by what seems to have been a third aircraft minutes later.The south tower of the World Trade Center subsequently collapsed, followed some thirty minutes later by the north tower, with incalculable loss of life. Details to follow.
