Breaking News

New York City has positively matched another September 11 victim to long-held human remains after retesting DNA.

The city medical examiner's office says 54-year-old Manuel Emilio Mejia has been identified from remains found at the World Trade Centre site in the months after the 2001 terrorist attack.

Mejia was a kitchen worker at Windows on the World, the restaurant on top of the trade centre's north tower.

Nearly 2,800 people are on the city's September 11 victims list, but more than 40% of them have never been identified from remains.
