Worldwide: Six hundred file September 11th law suit
More than 600 September 11 survivors and victims' families have filed a $100 trillion suit accusing the Saudi royal family, seven international banks, charities and others of financing Osama bin Laden's terrorist network.
The 259-page complaint, modeled after a case against the Libyan government over the 1988 in-flight bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, seeks to freeze and recover assets of those who have bankrolled Bin Laden's Al-Qaida network.
