9/11 attack on Pentagon: FBI releases unseen, rare images on official website
New Delhi : The FBI on Friday released unseen and rare images of the 9/11 terror attack on the Pentagon, the iconic five-sided building in Virginia that serves as the headquarters of the US defense department.
A total of batch of 27 photographs were posted on FBI's official website.
During the attacks on September 9, 2001, a group of terrorists affiliated to al-Qaeda hijacked four American airliners with the intention of crashing them into targets. Two planes were flown into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York and another was used to target the Pentagon. Nearly 3,000 people were killed in the attacks.
The eerie images in the FBI’s vault give a glimpse of the immediate aftermath of the attack on the Pentagon, the attempts to douse the flames and the subsequent clean-up.
