10+ Rare Photos Of 9/11 You Probably Haven’t Seen Before

It has been 16 years since the devastating attacks of September 11. Coverage of the tragedy during which nearly 3,000 perished was the main priority that day for most Western news agencies (the scenes were witnessed by an estimated two billion people - a third of the human race).

Together with amateur records, this has produced such an incredible amount of footage, some of it is rarely seen even today.
