On September 11, 2001 two planes flew into the World Trade Centre buildings in New York and one into the Pentagon in Washington in the USA, killing almost 3,000 people and injuring 6,000 others. The Western world was transfixed with the repetitive news coverage of the event, who portrayed the event as an act of war against America. Today we look at how the events of that day were received in cultures other than our own, and how the world has changed since that day.
