American attack by terrorists made upon the World Trade Center in New York City. At the time the bomb was set off, many of the 50,000 people who worked there and the many daily visitors were at lunch because it was an unusually balmy day. There was speculation that the bomb may have gone off earlier than the optimum time due to terrorists' miscalculations.
Palestinian Mohammed Salameh (b. 9/01/1967, Biddiya, Israel) was the first of the terrorists to be arrested on March 4th after he attempted to claim his deposit from Ryder Truck Rentals, and the FBI arrested him.
Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1993_World_Trade_Center_bombing "On Friday, February 26, 1993, Ramzi Yousef and a Jordanian friend, Eyad Ismoil, drove a yellow Ryder van into Lower Manhattan, and pulled into the public parking garage beneath the World Trade Center around noon. They parked on the underground B-2 level. Yousef ignited the 20-foot fuse, and fled. Twelve minutes later, at 12:17:37 pm, the bomb exploded in the underground garage, generating an estimated pressure of 150,000 psi."
