(Newser) – Workers for the New York City medical examiner's office have begun sifting soil for human remains at a site near the World Trade Center where a plane part was found last week. The part was wedged between an apartment building and a mosque that in 2010 prompted virulent national debate about Islam and freedom of speech because it is just blocks from Ground Zero. Authorities believe the part is from one of the two hijacked planes that brought down the trade center on 9/11. Of the nearly 3,000 victims, remains of about 1,000 were never recovered.
