How did 9/11 look around the world?

Headlines around the world captured the shock and awe of 9/11 back when not much else was known other than the destruction.

9/11 initiated a War on Terror that started with great vigor, but ended in failure after 20 years. 

Europe took 9/11 just as hard from across the Atlantic as the U.S.

The physical toll of 9/11 was massive, but the mental health effects remain to this day, 20 years later.

9/11 was one of the first time images from the general public were used in a journalistic fashion. It set the stage for today's social media takeover of the industry.

AL DÍA's Colombia team represents three generations of journalists that all have their own unique perspectives of the tragic day.

The Twin Towers were icons of American culture when they were destroyed. Now, a major memorial fills their void.
