The city is set to begin another round of sifting through World Trade Center debris to try and recover remains from victims of the September 11th attacks.

The Medical Examiner says the operation will begin Monday at a forensic mobile sifting location at Fresh Kills on Staten Island.

The sifting will be through materials found at or near the World Trade Center site since 2010.

Nearly 16,000 cubic feet of material will be sifted.

The process is expected to take 10 weeks.

Remains have been identified from more than 1,800 victims

Nearly 3,000 people died in the attack. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
