US sets to reveal name of Saudi official tied to 9/11 attacks

The US Justice Department has announced that it would name the Saudi official with alleged ties to the Al-Qaeda perpetrators of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.

The department maintained that this became imperative due to pressure from the families of those who were killed in the attacks.

Reports say the name would be revealed first to the court and the families of the victims.

The Justice Department however did not declare when they would make the name public.
