On the 11th of September 2021, netizens marked the 20 years of the deadly 9/11 terror attack on the World Trade Centre in the United States of America.
Planned by Osama Bin Laden, the Chief of Al Qaeda terror group, on the 11th of September, 2001, nineteen militants hijacked four commercial aircraft and carried out suicide attacks in the U.S.A. The devastating terror attack which killed thousands of people is still fresh in the memories of people across the world. In this tragic incident, 2,997 people lost their lives and more than 6,000 people were injured in American cities.
In 2002, Osama Bin Laden took the responsibility of the planned bomb blasts and said the attack was revenge for attacks on Muslims in Somalia, India and Russia.
