We all remember the Oklahoma City bombing! It was a domestic terrorist truck bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995.
The horrendous attack was perpetrated byTimothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols–two American anti-government extremists with white supremacist, right-wing terrorist sympathies.
The bombing happened at 9:01 AM and killed 168 adults and children, injuring more than 680 others. The blast destroyed or damaged 324 other buildings within a 16-block radius and shattered glass in 258 nearby buildings, and destroyed or burned 86 cars. .
May Allah use us as His instruments of peace.
