On February 26, 1993, a truck bomb exploded below Tower One of the World Trade Center in New York City. The intention of the 1,500 lb. Bomb detonation was to destroy both towers by knocking Tower One into Tower Two, killing thousands of people in the process. While the explosion did not destroy either tower, it did kill six people, injure more than a thousand, and cause hundreds of millions of dollars in damage.
The attack was planned by a group of individuals associated with al-Qaida, including Abdul Rahman Yasin, Ramzi Yousef, and several others. The funding for this operation was provided by Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the uncle of Ramzi Yousef and a high ranking member of al-Qaida. Six of the men associated with this attack have been convicted, including the mastermind, Ramzi Yousef.
The Rewards for Justice program is offering a reward of up to $5 million for information that brings to justice those responsible for this attack.
