"Welcome to this special edition -- extended edition of National Nine News as we try to come to terms with the almost unbelievable events of the past nineteen hours. It was a calculated, ruthless, and blood thirsty attack on the heart of America. The tall and proud Twin Towers of New York's World Trade Center now just rubble. The Pentagon also ploughed into by a hijacked airliner. Michael Usher, who's in New York, begins our coverage, which we warn does contain many graphic images which are certainly disturbing."
Report filed by Michael Usher for the September 12, 2001 edition of National Nine News Brisbane with Bruce Paige and Jillian Whiting.
