The unidentified remains of those killed in the Sept. 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center in New York City were moved into a repository at the bedrock level of Ground Zero on Saturday after a procession through Manhattan streets.

The 7,930 fragmentary remains in sealed containers were escorted by fire, police and Port Authority vehicles with flashing lights and no sirens from a Manhattan forensics lab to the repository at the site of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum.



The repository will be under the care of the city's chief medical examiner, whose office will continue trying to match the fragments to the more than 1,000 victims of the attacks that have yet to have had any remains identified.



The repository is sealed off from exhibition areas by a wall and will only be accessible to the medical examiner's staff and family members of the victims, who will be able to visit the space even when the museum is closed, the city has said.
