Amnesty International is outraged at the attacks carried out in the United States, involving the hijacking of civilian aircraft and resulting in thousands of men, women and children being killed, maimed or injured.

Amnesty International calls for those responsible for these attacks to be brought to justice, in full accordance with international human rights and humanitarian law.
