City Marks 22 Years Since First WTC Attack

NY1 News

A memorial ceremony is planned today to honor the victims of the first attack on the World Trade Center 22 years ago.

Six people were killed when a 1,200 pound truck bomb exploded in a parking garage underneath the Twin Towers on February 26, 1993.

More than a thousand other people were hurt.

Six people were later convicted in the case including Ramzi Yousef.

He’s the nephew of self-proclaimed September 11th mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

Today’s memorial event is set for noon at the September 11th Memorial and Museum in Lower Manhattan.

A moment of silence will be held at 12:18 p.m. when the bomb went off.

After that, the names of those who died will be read aloud by family members.
