NEW YORK - The New York City medical examiner's office plans to resume searching for human remains two blocks from the World Trade Center after the sudden discovery of an airplane's landing gear.
Medical examiner's spokeswoman Ellen Borakove told The Associated Press on Saturday that the alley behind a mosque site will first be tested as part of a standard health and safety evaluation.
Borakove says sifting for human remains will begin at 8 a.m. Tuesday.
The New York Police Department has declared the alley a crime scene, documenting it with photos and restricting access.
Authorities say the rusted landing gear is believed to be from a Sept. 11 hijacked plane. Police were guarding the area as a crime scene Saturday.
