Saudi Arabia Says 15 of Sept. 11 Hijackers Were Its Citizens

Quote:
Riyadh, Feb. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Saudi Arabia said for the first time 15 of the 19 hijackers behind the Sept. 11 attacks in the U.S. were Saudi citizens, the Associated Press cited Interior Minister Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz as saying.

``The names that we got confirmed that,'' Nayef said in an interview with AP. ``Their families have been notified.''

Saudi authorities detained about 30 people since Sept. 11 based on lists provided by the U.S., he said. Some have been released.
