A bill was backed on Monday that would allow families of  9/11 victims to sue government whose nationals were involved in that attack. The bill was backed by Two leading US presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders,
On Monday, her campaign released a more definitive statement saying families and victims of terror need to “hold accountable those responsible. As president, she’d work with Congress on that end”.Although the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, approved by the Senate’s judiciary committee last month, does not specifically mention Saudi Arabia by name, a number of victims’ families have already announced their intention to sue the government in Riyadh.“Obviously we’ve got to make anyone who participates in or supports terrorism pay a price. And we also have to be aware of any consequences that might affect Americans, either military or civilian or our nation,” Mrs Clinton told ABC News on Sunday night. “I support legislation by Senator Chuck Schumer that would allow Americans, including the families of victims of the 9/11 attacks, to use US courts to determine if foreign entities are culpable for terrorist attacks in the United States and seek restitution for the damages and lives lost,” said Senator Sanders.The dispute caused a major rupture in US-Saudi relations and earlier this week Saudi Arabia threatened to pull $750 billion from US economy if Congress approved the bill.
