New York: 'At last some justice for the murder of 3,000 Americans,' said a man after he learnt of Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden's killing. His firefighter son was killed on 9/11.

Jim Riches, whose son died when the World Trade Center's north tower collapsed, said he was gratified when he learned of Osama bin Laden's killing in Pakistan.

'(My) son still isn't coming home.'

'(There's) no closure, but at last some justice for the murder of 3,000 Americans, finally,' a channel quoted Riches as saying.

About 3,000 people were killed on September 11, 2001, when two hijacked aircraft slammed into the twin towers of the World Trade Center while a third jetliner crashed into the Pentagon.

A former New York firefighter, who had to retire following lung ailments caused by dust from ground zero, said: 'It's a war that I feel we just won.'
