21 Rare Photos Of 9/11 Attacks You Probably Haven’t Seen Before


It has been 17 years since the disastrous 9/11 attacks. Coverage of the American Airlines flight 11 disaster during which nearly 3,000 died was the main priority that day for most Western news agencies (the collapse of the twin towers were witnessed by an estimated two billion people – a third of the human population). Together with amateur records, this has created such an incredible amount of 9/11 photos, some of it is seldom seen even today.
