Boston airport apologises for fire drill on 9/11
Boston: Officials at Boston`s Logan International Airport are apologising for holding a fire drill, complete with smoke and flames, on the 12th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
The two hijacked jets that were flown into the World Trade Center towers in New York flew out of Logan.
The runway fire drill, announced on the airport`s Facebook page, drew harsh condemnation.
The Massachusetts Port Authority, the agency that runs the airport, said in a statement that it "apologises for conducting the fire training exercise and understands that it may have offended many of those touched by the events of September 11."
Several events were held at the airport to mark the anniversary.
"How clueless and insensitive can you be," one woman wrote on the airport`s Facebook page.
