In Pictures: Remembering 9/11, two decades later

Must Try

TORONTO — WARNING: This story contains images that some people may find disturbing.

It has been 20 years since terrorists flew airplanes into the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington on Sept. 11, 2001, a series of attacks that changed the world as we know it.

Americans and Canadians alike are reflecting on the sacrifices made by firefighters, police, and other first responders who rushed to the scene to help.

They are also remembering how volunteers in Gander, N.L., and its neighbouring towns stepped up to help the passengers of airplanes that were diverted to Canada as news of the attacks spread.

Here are some photos that were taken in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
