Families gather at Ground Zero to remember victims of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing days after blind sheikh who plotted the attack dies behind bars

A memorial service was held on the 24th anniversary of the February 26, 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. Six people, one of whom was 8 months pregnant, were killed in the attack and 1,042 were injured by the bombing, reports Karen Ruiz in the Daily Mail

Families of those murdered, friends, police officers and firefighters observed a moment of silence at the site of the World Trade Center at 12.18pm, the moment the bomb was detonated.

The 1993 bombing was considered to be the worst terrorist attack in the US, until the September 11, 2001 attack.
