On Sept. 11, 2001, the United States was shocked by acts of terror unlike anything it had seen before. While Americans tried to process the devastation in New York City, the destruction at the Pentagon and the tragedy of a downed Flight 93 near Shanksville, Pa., journalists were tasked with describing the unthinkable.

These front pages are just a sampling of the 145 front pages from 19 countries on Sept. 12, 2001 that exemplify the horror, confusion and all the other emotions that accompanied the aftermath of the terrorist attacks. The full archive is available at the Newseum website.
