Witness - The first World Trade Center attack
How Islamic extremists tried to blow up the Twin Towers eight years before 9/11.
In 1993, Islamic extremists planted a huge bomb in the car park of the World Trade Center in New York. The blast killed six people and opened up an enormous crater, but the bombers failed to bring down the skyscraper. Witness speaks to a member of the World Trade Center security staff about the forerunner of 9/11. PHOTO: Damage inside the World Trade Center (Reuters)
