New York agrees World Trade Center 9/11 dust payoutBreaking News
The settlement would compensate more than 10,000 plaintiffs who say they were made sick by dust at the Ground Zero site of the attacks.
At least 95% of the plaintiffs must approve the deal for it to take effect.
The money would come from a federally financed insurance fund of almost $1bn that the city controls.
The toxic cloud from the collapsed World Trade Center towers contained particles of asbestos, lead, glass and cement.
