In an attack that lasted 102 minutes, suicide bombers crashed two planes into the twin towers of the World Trade Centre complex in Manhattan, New York. A third and fourth airplane slammed into the Pentagon building and into a field in Pennsylvania respectively.

The attacks not only led to the death of over 3,000 people but an equally robust investigation by the Americans. In the aftermath, thousands of people especially Muslims were forced into detention.
