Newspaper review: 9/11 attacks recalled
- 11 September 2011
- From the section UK
The tenth anniversary of the terror attacks on the US which occurred on 11 September 2001 is widely commemorated in Sunday's newspapers.
The front page of the Independent on Sunday carries an image of New York's permanently altered sky-line, with a simple headline: " The Lost Decade."
It says the last decade robbed the world's only superpower of confidence and stripped it of its illusions.
But the Sunday Telegraph disagrees, saying the US remains more resilient and unified than her detractors know.
He argues that al-Qaeda and its form of radical Islamism may come to be seen as a "mere blip".
Among many personal recollections are those of Maureen Maddison, in the Sunday Express, who lost her husband and father of her three children.
Meanwhile, the Sunday Mirror features images of the World Trade Center site immediately after the attacks and now.
It says the 61-year-old is planning a life in academia, although Lambeth Palace has declined to comment.
Meanwhile, in a letter to the Sunday Times, four former foreign secretaries urge David Cameron to take Russia's leaders to task.
They say Russian authorities have failed to protect businessmen, lawyers and journalists from corruption.
The sports pages of many Sunday papers focus on the success of Manchester's two top-flight football teams.
The Sunday Star says "Manchester United and City continued their two-team title fight" after defeating Bolton and Wigan Athletic respectively.
And the Mail on Sunday reports on an "ugly" win by the England rugby team in an "error-filled" start to its World Cup campaign.
