DOmar Abdel Rahman’s Death Stirs Memories of 1993 Attack - The New York Times

The World Trade Center, located in the heart of Manhattan in
New York City,
was built in 1966 and instantly became an
iconic landmark for the city.

The Twin Towers, as they were known, stood over 1,360 feet
above ground — each holding 110 floors.

On this day in history, Feb. 26, 1993, the World Trade Center
was bombed — injuring more than 1,000 people.

At around 12:00 p.m., a group of terrorists, including a man
named Ramzi Yousef (below) drove a van into the public
parking garage below the Towers.

The van exploded roughly 17 minutes after noon — creating
a 100-foot crater within the north tower.  Six people near the
bomb site were almost immediately killed.
