Korea building design 'similarity' sparks 9/11 anger

An apartment complex design in Seoul, South Korea, has attracted criticism for its similarity to the World Trade Center's final moments after the 9/11 attacks.

The towers, one with 54 floors and the other with 60, are designed by Dutch architects MVRDV and will be built at the entrance to Seoul's redeveloped Yongsan business district by 2016.
