Cost of Terrorist Attack

The terrorist attack of September 11, 2001, has cost Americans more than can ever be counted. But by late September, some of those costs were already being calculated:

· $4 billion: Estimated benefits the life-insurance industry expects to pay because of the attacks
· $15 billion: Aid package passed by Congress to bail out the airlines
· 79,390: Airline workers who were laid off after the terrorist attacks
· 1,968: Total number of people killed in the world's 10 worst terrorist attacks before September 11
· 6,333: People reported missing in the World Trade Center rubble as of September 22
· 2,593: Estimated number of foreign citizens from 65 countries missing or dead
