Twenty-four years ago, six people were killed and more than 1,000 were injured 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 that took place on Feb. 26, 1993, leaving a hole in the building that measured five stories tall, stunned the city.

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

Take a look back at photos from the tragic day.
