New York - Eleven years after the September 11 attacks, the New York City coroner has identified the remains of the 1 634th victim.

The remains were positively identified as belonging to Anna Laverty, 52, one of the 2 753 people killed when passenger planes hijacked by al-Qaeda militants slammed into New York's World Trade Centre on 11 September 2001.

No human remains have been linked to 1 119 of the victims, according to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, which announced the latest positive identification on Thursday.

Since 2006, authorities have selected 6 134 bone fragments and 1 845 other remains for advanced DNA testing, which has led to the identification of 34 victims.
