NPR's Brian Naylor reports from New York that family members of victims of Sept. 11 attacks will stage a demonstration tonight to protest the way proceeds from the victims compensation fund are being allocated. Family members stand to receive an average of about $1.6 million dollars. But the current formula stipulates that whatever life insurance, pension payments, or death benefits the victims receive will be subtracted from the federal award.
