WASHINGTON (CIRCA) — Twenty-six years ago today, six people were killed and more than 1,000 injured when terrorists bombed a parking garage below the World Trade Center in New York.
The attack foreshadowed the 9/11 terrorist attack.
According to the FBI, shortly after noon, a bomb went off and "carved out a nearly 100-foot crater several stories deep and several more high."
An investigation led officials to four Islamic fundamentalists, who were later convicted and sentenced to life for the bombing.
The men were identified as Mohammad Salameh, Nidal Ayyad, Mahmoud Abouhalima and Ahmed Ajaj.
The lives of those lost were remembered Tuesday during an annual remembrance ceremony at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in New York City.
