The world loves a juicy conspiracy theory, so it’s no surprise that most notorious events in history have attracted alternative explanations, some zany, some quite plausible.
Here we reveal the greatest conspiracy theories of all time.
What: New York terrorist attacks, September 11 2001
Eight years after the event, conspiracy theories continue to surround 9/11. The latest suggests the destruction of the towers was caused by nano-thermite - a substance with more power than dynamite.
It is claimed ten tonnes of it were found in rubble near Ground Zero.
Other theories suggest the CIA turned a blind eye, and that the towers were detonated by Bush’s government as a pretext to wage war in the Middle East.
Theorists reckon the impact of two planes was not enough to cause the towers’ collapse, while emergency services claim to have heard explosions from inside the buildings before the planes hit.
