NEW YORK--The families of Chinese victims of Osama bin Laden's Sept. 11, 2001, attacks have finally found comfort from bin Laden's death. Over the past 10 years, many have gone on with their lives, but some still feel the memory is too painful to recall, Sing Tao reported.

Jiao Xian Cen said her son Zhe Zeng saved others and died in the 9/11 attacks. The death forced Cen into deep sorrow, but, fortunately, support from relatives and friends enabled her to overcome the pain enough to continue.

Lei Bo Rui, commander at New York Police Department's 5th Precinct in Chinatown, said his son worked at a bank close to the World Trade Center Twin Towers. His son dies when the bank was crushed by one of the falling towers. Lei told Sing Tao that the memory was too painful to recall. And, of course, he said, Osama’s death is a comfort for families of those who died on 9/11.

David W. Lim, executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, helped to rescue and evacuate people in the third and fourth floor of the Twin Towers at Sept. 11. Told Sing Tao that he had been waiting for the news for 10 years since he witnessed 37 of his colleagues being klilled. Lim said, he was excited to watch TV Sunday night as President Obama announced the news.
