The remains of unidentified victims of the 9/11 terror attacks in New York have been taken to Ground Zero ahead of the opening of a memorial museum at the site.
The remains are to be stored in a repository that is part of the museum, but in a section that will not be open to the public.
The fragmentary remains will be under the care of New York’s chief medical examiner. His office will continue trying to match the fragments to the more than 1,000 victims who have yet to have any remains identified.
Some family members of those killed in the September 11 attacks held a silent protest, as the remains were transported to Ground Zero. They believe it is wrong to store the remains at what is primarily a tourist site.
