NEW YORK -- A new FDNY report shows that 79 percent of firefighters in lower Manhattan on September 11, 2001 now have respiratory problems.

Some officials consider this the most credible proof yet of health problems, because the department has data about firefighters lungs from before 9/11.

Thursday Mayor Bloomberg also announced two new free clinics for residents and workers exposed to ground zero toxins on the lower east side and in Elmhurst, Queens.
