The FBI has released 27 photographs apparently taken after the attack on the Pentagon on 11 September 2001.

The images appear to show emergency services battling to control the blaze, as well as recovery teams and investigators searching the rubble.

American Airlines Flight 77, travelling from Virginia to LA, slammed into the building at around 09:37 local time.
