New York City planned to release Wednesday more than 1,600 undisclosed Sept. 11 emergency calls - several by rescuers who later were killed - after fire department officials said they discovered internal dispatches by firefighters from within the burning World Trade Center. The New York Times and families of Sept. 11 victims had sued the city for access to firefighters' oral histories and emergency calls made from and around the site on the day of the terrorist attacks in 2001. The fire department said that when it first turned over its emergency calls, officials "misinterpreted instructions they were given on what kinds of calls to copy" and "failed to capture" other emergency calls they knew had to be made public. "The department regrets the delay," it said in a statement Tuesday evening.
