Nearly a decade after the 9/11 attacks, forensic technicians are still identifying pieces of human remains found in the rubble of the World Trade Center.

The office of New York City's medical examiner announced Thursday that it had successfully matched yet another set of remains to a 32-year-old man lost in the collapse.

Officials declined to release his name.

To date, authorities have identified the remains of 1,630 victims, or just under 60 percent of the narly 2,800 people who died.

When the 9/11 museum is built at gorund zero, unidentified remains will be housed behind an unmarked wall there.
