    Places of importance after the attacks

    Some places that became well known after Sept. 11.

    LOGAN INTERNATIONAL: The busy Boston airport where 10 hijackers boarded the planes that crashed into the twin towers. Stung by accusations of lax security, the airport shook up its management and procedures. No other airport has moved as aggressively to make security improvements, the federal Transportation Security Administration says.

    SHANKSVILLE, PA.: Site of the crash of United Airlines Flight 93 after heroic passengers overcame the hijackers. Since then, thousands of people have trekked to the dairy farming community (pop. 245) 80 miles southeast of Pittsburgh to see the grassy field where the plane came down.

    FRESH KILLS LANDFILL: The Staten Island landfill where for 10 months workers picked through the World Trade Center ruins for human remains and criminal evidence. At the height of the operation, which ended in July, 7,000 tons of material were processed each day.

    CENTCOM: Military shorthand for the U.S. Central Command at MacDill Air Force Base. Since it was activated in 1983, Centcom has been responsible for U.S. security interests in the Middle East and directed the Persian Gulf War and the war in Afghanistan.

    PESHAWAR: An ancient city in northwest Pakistan 25 miles from the Afghan border. As the United States moved against terrorists in Afghanistan, thousands of Afghan refugees streamed into Peshawar and violent anti-American demonstrations rocked the city.

    UZBEKISTAN: The former Soviet republic north of Afghanistan. In an unlikely partnership, its authoritarian regime allowed the United States to use a former Soviet airbase there.

    KABUL: The capital of Afghanistan and first key target of America and its allies. When it fell in mid November, the Taliban regime and its al-Qaida allies were scattered.

    KANDAHAR: The city in southern Afghanistan that was the spiritual capital of the Taliban and, early on, the suspected hiding place of Osama bin Laden and Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar. It fell in early December.

    TORA BORA: The rugged mountain region where Afghanistan abuts Pakistan and final al-Qaida stronghold. It fell Dec. 16.

    CAMP X-RAY: The makeshift prison compound at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba that for several months held up to 300 al-Qaida and Taliban terrorists. The 6- by 8-foot cells were made of chain-link fencing and surrounded by fences crowned with brambles of razor wire. In May, the prisoners were moved to a more permanent facility called Camp Delta.

    VENICE, BOCA RATON: Two Florida towns that became datelines for news stories sent around the world. Three of the hijackers took lessons at flight schools in Venice. The tabloid publisher America Media Inc. was based in a Boca Raton building that has been sealed since October, when one employee died of anthrax and another became severely ill.

    BRENTWOOD: The postal processing facility in northeast Washington that has been closed since last fall, shortly after it processed anthrax-tainted letters addressed to the U.S. Capitol. Two Brentwood workers died from contact with anthrax, others were sickened and thousands were treated to prevent infection.
