New York - The planned mosque and Islamic centre blocks from the World Trade Centre site in New York is getting a new boost from a coalition of supporters that includes 9/11 families.

New York Neighbours for American Values rallied for the first time on Wednesday at a municipal building near ground zero.

Talat Hamdani says her paramedic son, a Muslim, gave his life on September 11 2001, to save Americans and their values, including freedom of religion.

The group was started by members of 40 civic and religious organisations. It plans a candlelight vigil near ground zero on September 10, the eve of the ninth September 11 anniversary.

The head of the watchdog group Common Cause New York, Susan Lerner, says the controversy over the Islamic cultural centre was triggered by "irresponsible politicians" using it as an election issue.
