EDISON - The plan to build a mosque near Ground Zero continues to cause controversy. Politicians and family members of 9/11 victims spoke out about the planned mosque and cultural center two blocks from Ground Zero.

News 12 New Jersey spoke with Diane Horning, who lost a relative in the trade center attacks. She says that she believes in religious freedom and supports the right to build the mosque. Horning also says the bigger fight is over the remains of her son, and the nearly 3,000 others killed in at the World Trade Center many of their remains have yet to receive a proper burial.
