by

    Some survivors of the September 11 attacks and the families of victims have moved to a New York court against Saudi Arabia.

    They accuse the Saudi government of helping the hijackers launch the concurrent attacks in 2001.

    They came to the court to demand the Saudi government cough up more information - specific documents that survivors of the attacks believe will shed new light on the hijackers.
