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.

Monday's announcement marks the first time since March 2015 that a September 11 World Trade Center victim has been positively confirmed.

He was identified using DNA testing, according to the City Medical Examiner.

The office said it now knows the name of the 1,641st victim to be identified of the 2,753 killed at the towers. Most of the DNA profiles generated belong to previously identified victims.

Remains of 1,641 victims have been identified so far.

Investigators are demanding documents to the White House
Mueller's focus on the payments marks the first time his investigation has asked the White House to submit documents for its review.

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.
