World Trade Center 1993 bombing: Photos of the aftermath

Six people were killed and more than 1,000 were injured nearly 26 years ago when a truck carrying about 1,200 pounds of explosives detonated inside a parking garage under the north tower of the World Trade Center.

The lunchtime bombing on Feb. 26, 1993, left a hole in the building that measured three stories tall, stunning the city – and the country.

Several men with connections to Islamic extremist terrorism were convicted of the bombing, including mastermind Ramzi Yousef, who was sentenced to 240 years in prison.

Take a look back at photos from the tragic day.
