September 11, 2001 saw a terror attack in the U.S., carried out by 19 members of the Al-Qaeda group led by Osama bin Laden, kill nearly 3,000 people, including all 19 terrorists.

The 19 Al-Qaeda members hijacked four planes. Two were crashed into the two towers of the World Trade Center in New York City. A third plane smashed into the Pentagon (the headquarters of the U.S. Department of Defense in Virginia), according to the 9/11 Commission Report by the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States.

The fourth aircraft crashed in a field in southern Pennsylvania. “It had been aimed at the United States Capitol or the White House, and was forced down by heroic passengers armed with the knowledge that America was under attack,” the report noted.

“The day began with the 19 hijackers getting through a security checkpoint system that they had evidently analyzed and knew how to defeat. Their success rate in penetrating the system was 19 for 19. They took over the four flights, taking advantage of air crews and cockpits that were not prepared for the contingency of a suicide hijacking,” the report said.

The 9/11 attacks killed over 2,600 people at the World Trade Center in New York City, while 125 were reported to be dead at the Pentagon and 256 passengers died on the planes, the report confirmed.

Here we take a closer look at the 19 hijackers from the 9/11 attacks. All data below is sourced from the Central Intelligence Agency.
