This Saturday marked the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks in the United States.

On the 20th anniversary of the deadliest attack on US soil, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) released a document analyzing possible connections between several Saudi citizens in the United States and two of the attackers on September 11, 2001.

Relatives of the victims of the Twin Towers attacks had been requesting the release of these classified files for years, arguing that Saudi officials had prior knowledge of the attack but did not attempt to stop it.

15 of the 19 hijackers of the planes were citizens Saudis.

However, the document – the first of several expected to be made public – no proportional none evidence that the Saudi government had been linked or had knowledge of the plot against the Twin Towers.
