New DNA technology identifies 9/11 victim 16 years after terror attack

Only about 60 percent of the 2,753 World Trade Center victims have been formally identified, according to the agency. About 1,112 remains of those victims remain unidentified, the medical examiner's office said.

The attacks, which killed 2,977 people, saw al-Qaeda-linked terrorists hijack four planes and crash them into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania on September 11, 2001.

The city's forensic pathologists said Monday they have formally identified a man who died at the World Trade Center on 9/11. The medical examiner was previously limited by technology in its ability to test the samples. They declined to release his name at the request of his family.

This effort has not been simple as very few full bodies were recovered following the disaster.

North Korea Threatens Retaliation Against US Over UN Sanctions
However, the top U.S. diplomat said it was not a matter of stopping the launches by "a specific number of days or weeks". Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi publicly admonished North Korea and urged them to abide by the new sanctions.

The process involves pulverising the fragments of remains to extract DNA, then comparing it to the collection of genetic material from victims or their relatives.

New, more sensitive DNA technology was deployed earlier this year and helped make the latest identification after earlier testing produced no results, the medical examiner's office said.

Now and again, researchers have backpedaled to a similar bone section at least 10 times, trusting new innovation will give answers.

Nearly 3,000 individuals were slaughtered in NY, at the Pentagon and close Shanksville, Pennsylvania, in the assaults.
