9/11 memorial: Row over victims' remains

A new row has erupted over what to do with the large number of unidentified remains of victims of the 9/11 attacks in New York.

It comes just months before the official opening of a memorial to those who died in the terror attack.

The intention is to include the remains in the museum complex currently being built at Ground Zero.

But many relatives believe it is disrespectful to the dead while others say having those remains, at what is called the bedrock of the World Trade Center site, was agreed long ago.

The BBC's Laura Trevelyan reports from Manhattan.
