An employee lowers the flags of member states of the European Union at
half mast in front of the building of the European Parliament in
Strasbourg September 12, 2001, following the terrorist attacks in the
United States. Thousands of lives were lost September 11 after two
highjacked planes ploughed into the World Trade center, another plane
plunged into the Pentagon and a fourth crashed into rural Pensylvania.
