In a reversal, New York City's medical examiner has officially ruled that a woman's death was related to toxic fumes released after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

Felicia Dunn Jones was working one block away from the World Trade Center on the day the towers were destroyed. She died from a lung-related infection several months later.

Robert Siegel talks with Arthur Browne, editorial page editor at The New York Daily News, who recently won a Pulitzer Prize for the paper's coverage of illnesses linked to the attacks.
