Twenty Years Ago: World Trade Center Bombing

On February 26, 1993, a truck full of explosives detonated in the garage of the World Trade Center's North Tower garage. The explosion ripped through several floors of the building and killed six people, one of them ready to go on maternity leave. A thousand people were injured. Eventually, six terrorists were convicted of the attack, which was supposed to bring the towers down. Link
