New York officials have identified another Sept. 11 victim from years-old remains that have been retested with new DNA technology over the past year. Nine victims whose remains had not been identified from the thousands recovered after the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center have been positively identified in the past two months, the city medical examiner's office said. Office spokeswoman Ellen Borakove said the city called family members of the latest identified victim on Wednesday. The victim's name was not released. The victims recently identified include a city firefighter, an Australian passenger of the plane that crashed into the north tower and a woman who was working in the north tower on floors near the point of the crash.
