19

Even though it has been 16 years since the devastating attacks of September 11, we just can’t help but still feel pain for the incident. The coverage of the tragedy, during which nearly 3,000 perished, was the main priority for most Western news agencies. Together with amateur records, this produced an incredible amount of footage that is rarely seen these days.

Bored Panda compiled a list of the least seen 9/11 pictures across the internet. These unforgettable photos reveal new angles of the horrific day that changed our world forever. If you want more of these shots, you can check out this powerful book by David Friend.
