How is it possible that this could happen. So much for US Intelligence!

What on earth? This is awful! I'm just watching shots of this on a newsflash. Both of the planes were passenger aircraft!

6 people confirmed dead.

1000+ injured.

I hear the President is about to speak concerning this tragedy.

This is still happening as we speak. It is believed that the second plane may have been hijacked.

<font color="yellow">
NEW YORK (CNN) -- What appeared to be two passenger planes crashed into the World Trade Center towers in Manhattan on Tuesday, leaving both towers in flames.

About 18 minutes after the first plane hit the northern tower, a second plane slammed into the southern tower, erupting into a huge fireball. The harrowing images were caught in live video.

Live pictures showed a gaping hole on the side of the northern building, several stories down from the top. Black smoke was billowing from at least two sides.

The second crash hit the second tower several stories lower than the first in a huge burst of flame.

Sean Murtagh, a CNN vice president, was in an office near the World Trade Center towers at the time of the first crash. He witnessed the crash.

"It was a jet, looked like a two-engine jet," Murtagh said. "It looked like maybe a 737."

Murtagh said he saw the plane "teetering back and forth, wingtip to wingtip" before the plane smashed into the side of the building.

Jeanne Yurman witnessed the explosion that followed the crash.

"At first it was like leaflets," she said, describing the debris that fell to the ground. "There was tons of debris and it continues to fall out."

Yurman said she did not see the plane.

Just seen it on uk TV - apparantly FBI thinks 2 passenger aircraft were hi-jacked. I sure hope there were no passengers on board.....

I am watching it now, as well.
International trady (my major) will be hurting for a while.
I hope those people in the towers did not see death coming at them.
How horrible it would be to see that.

Do only Americans work there, or are there representatives from other nations, as well??

It has been confirmed that a Boeing 767 was hijacked in Boston.
