US protest by 9/11 responders

Emergency workers suffering from after affects of attacks complain of healthcare delay.



    Hundreds of emergency workers who responded to the September 11, 2001, attacks in the United States have been protesting in the capital, Washington, DC.

    They say they are angry that it has taken eight years for the US Congress to discuss healthcare needed for those who have fallen ill as a result of working in the skyscrapers' ruins.

    Many of those first responders are slowly dying from illnesses contracted at Ground Zero.

    John Terrett reports from Washington.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
