9/11 victims 'to spend eternity' in city rubbish dump 

Remains of 9/11 victims 'to spend eternity' in city rubbish dump
The remains of hundreds of victims of the September 11 attacks are to be permanently buried in the world's largest rubbish dump. Relatives of 1,169 of the 3,000 who died have yet to receive any remains, and many are outraged at the authorities' decision.

The office of the New York City mayor, Michael Bloomberg, pointed out that the coroner's office was still trying to identify 10,260 fragments of remains gathered at Fresh Kills.
