September 11 ceremony moved from ground zero

New York mayor Michael Bloomberg says the annual remembrance ceremony for victims of the Sept 11 terrorist attack will not be held in its original location.

Construction on the memorial and new buildings at ground zero make it unsafe for a large gathering, he said.

Some victims' family members have threatened to boycott the event.
