9/11: Ten years on

07 Sep. 2011

On 11 September 2001, the world watched in shock and horror as New York’s World Trade Center Towers were reduced to rubble by terrorists, using civilian passenger jets as weapons of mass destruction. The day after the attacks, NATO Allies expressed their solidarity with the people of the United States by invoking Article 5 of the Washington Treaty. NATO’s collective defence clause states an attack on one Ally is an attack upon all Allies.
