September 11 victims cannot seize Afghan central bank assets - US judge

US District Judge George Daniels in Manhattan adopted a recommendation by a federal magistrate judge that the assets not be seized while saying that the victims deserved to be "made whole for the worst terrorist attack in our nation's history."
