NEW YORK (AP) - On Saturday, thousands of vacuum-sealed pouches filled with the remains of people who died in the World Trade Center on 9/11 will be moved in a solemn procession from the city's medical examiner's office to the new trade center site.

They'll be kept in a bedrock repository 70 feet underground in the new memorial museum that opens May 21.

The remains will be accessible only to families of the dead and to the forensic scientists.
