Most of the new testing has pointed toward already-identified victims of the terror attacks.

Before this latest victim, the last time a new identification was made was in March 2015.

The remains of a victim from the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center have been identified, a few weeks shy of the tragedy's 16th anniversary, the New York City medical examiner's office announced Monday.

His distinguishing proof was affirmed through DNA retesting.

The medical examiner's office identified the remains through DNA testing.

Few full bodies were found in the aftermath of the attack, making it hard for authorities to identify victims.

In New York City, the Twin Towers were hit, the structures engulfed in flames before eventually collapsing, killing more than 2,600 people.

Few full bodies were recovered after the giant towers burned and collapsed, and the effects of heat, bacteria and chemicals such as jet fuel made it all the more hard to analyse the remains.
