Devastating Terrorist Attack On The United States Grounds All Air Traffic; Attacks Aimed At World Trade Center In New York And Pentagon In Washington
|All major news sources are reporting a devastating terrorist attack on the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington. Earlier this morning, just minutes apart, two jetliners purposely crashed into the upper levels of each tower of the World Trade Center. Both towers have subsequently completely collapsed causing devastation and chaos throughout the city and leaving an undetermined number of dead and injured. |
A third jetliner purposely crashed into a section of the Pentagon. A fourth jetliner has reportedly crashed outside Pittsburgh.
Specific information is sketchy at this point. All major television and radio networks are maintaining live coverage and updates. A number of advisories have been issued and air traffic to and throughout North America is grinding to a halt as all North American air traffic is ordered to land and all takeoffs suspended.
Business To Business Travel Websites will try to post news & information on our sites - Asia Pacific News, Europe News, and North America News - as it becomes available.
