The destruction of the twin towers of the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon by suicide attacks, claiming thousands of lives. A dark shadow is cast across the Islamic world.

Travel teaches you to appreciate the diversity of our world, and it fills me with sadness to be confronted by such intolerance.
