9/11 images: killers, asylum seekers, victims, intelligence intercepts – and 377 tonnes of high explosive powder

Photos of the lead protagonists in the new book, A History of the World since 9/11, can now be viewed at the Gallery. Mark Stroman, hero (‘anti-hero’?) of chapter 1, is there showing off his tattoos, as is Abdul Malik, who appears in chapter 3. There will shortly be pictures of the
