Today in History: Oklahoma City

19 April 1995 - Oklahoma City Bombing
18 years ago today Timothy McVeigh, an ex-Army soldier, parked a rental truck in front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City. Inside the truck was a deadly combination of agricultural fertilizer, diesel fuel, and other chemicals. At 9:02 am the bomb exploded, killing 168 people. It was - at that time - the worst incident of terrorism of American soil.
