Sep 03, – U.S. officials Tuesday expressed fears that Islamist militants who allegedly stole 11 jetliners in Libya last month could carry out a 9/11-style attack in North Africa days before the 13th anniversary of the terror attack on the United States.

Missing Libyan aircraft spark fears of 9-11-style attack in North Africa“We found out on Sept. 11 what can happen with hijacked planes,” he added.

The official also said that the missing jets were a serious threat and a counter terrorism concern.

Dozens of jets went missing after the Dawn of Libya group overran Tripoli’s international airport on Aug. 23.

During the 2001 attack, a total of 2,753 people lost their lives when Al-Qaeda hijackers flew two airliners into the New York World Trade Center’s Twin Towers.

A third plane was flown into the Pentagon, while a fourth crashed in a Pennsylvania field after its passengers tried to overpower the hijackers.
