Thousands of unidentified remains of victims of the 9/11 attack in New York were transferred in a solemn procession on Saturday to Ground Zero, the World Trade Center site that is now a memorial and museum.
People who were exposed to a massive dust cloud of air pollution at Ground Zero when the 9/11 twin terror attacks took place are at an increased risk of developing obstructive sleep apnea and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Any move to shift the
location of the planned mosque near Ground Zero in New York
would strengthen radicals in the Muslim world, a cleric behind
the construction of the Islamic Cultural Centre warned on Sunday.
The proposed Islamic centre near
Ground Zero will include separate prayer spaces for people of
other faiths, including Islam, Christianity and Jews, the
controversial cleric behind plans for the facility said on Wednesday.
Joining the debate on the controversy over the proposed mosque near Ground Zero, the father of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, who was beheaded by militants in Pakistan, has said the mosque should not be built there.
