OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma (WABC) -- Exactly two years later after the Waco Siege on April 19, 1995, anti-government militant Timothy McVeigh and his co-conspirator Terry Nichols detonated a truck full of explosives outside the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

The blast left 168 people dead and hundreds more injured, making it the worst attack on American soil until 9/11. Among the dead were 19 young children, who were in the building's daycare center at the time of the blast. The Murrah Building housed several federal agencies, including one of the agencies that had launched the initial raid on the Branch Davidian compound.
