Attack (13 Sep 2001)


Talks about the recent terrorist attacks that toppled New York's World Trade Center and damaged the Pentagon in Washington. Both are symbols of US financial and military power. Rescuers are battling to find survivors, but thousands are believed to be dead. US financial and stock markets remain closed, while airports are facing massive disruptions, as drastic security measures are being taken. Hong Kong officials believe that there were some Hong Kong citizens who may have been in the World Trade Center, but no one knows whether they survived. It is believed that Osama bin Ladin is behind the attacks.
