Government Building Terror Concern Tragically Elevated by Oklahoma City Bombing
That’s when a rental truck, containing approximately 5,000 pounds of ammonium nitrate fertilizer, nitro methane, and diesel fuel was detonated in front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, destroying one-third of the building and causing severe damage to several other buildings located nearby. As a result of the massive explosion, 168 people were killed, including 19 children, and more than 800 others were injured. It was the largest terrorist attack on American soil in history before the September 11 attacks. It remains the deadliest act of domestic terrorism in American history.
