Saturday marks 29 years since 1993 World Trade Center bombing

NEW YORK (WABC) — Saturday marks 29 years since the World Trade Center bombing in 1993.

A virtual mass was held Saturday morning in honor of the victims at St. Francis of Assisi Church in Manhattan as well as the annual ceremony by the National September 11 Memorial Museum.

On Feb. 26, 1993, a truck bomb built by Islamic extremists exploded in the parking garage of the North Tower of New York’s World Trade Center, killing six people and injuring more than 1,000 others.

The bomb failed to topple the North Tower into the South Tower, as the terrorists had hoped; both structures were destroyed in the 9/11 attack eight years later.
