AP A white pigeon rests on the National September 11 Memorial North Pool Friday
He is the 1,641st person to be identified in the attacks that saw al-Qaeda terrorists plough two commercial Boeing 767s into the Twin Towers in NY, buildings which then collapsed, killing 2,753 people in total. Sixteen years after the attack, the New York City Medical Examiner's Office said it identified one of the victims.
After some time, the therapeutic analyst's office came to utilize a procedure that includes beating the sections to remove DNA, at that point contrasting it with the workplace's gathering of hereditary material from casualties or their relatives.
The latest identification follows the use of more sensitive DNA technology since the start of the year.
In some cases, scientists have gone back to the same bone fragment 10 or more times, hoping new technology will provide answers.
More than 2,750 people were killed when two passenger jets destroyed the Twin Towers, the symbol of New York's financial wealth and confidence. There were very few full bodies recovered following the fiery crash of the towers, and the impact of various environmental factors made the bits of remains hard to analyze.
