The Fake Victim

3rd April 2019

Everyone will remember where they were on September 11th 2001. Unbelievably, one person saw the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York as an opportunity to achieve respect, sympathy and profile.

Who was she?  And why did she claim to be caught up in one of the most tragic events in recent history?
