The U.S. government on Friday released a once-classified chapter from a congressional report on the 9/11 attacks that addresses Saudi connections to some of the hijackers. 

Under wraps for 13 years, the report contains numerous redactions but states some hijackers "were in contact with, and received support or assistance from, individuals who may be connected to the Saudi Government."

The documents were posted Friday by the House intelligence committee.

The report questioned whether Saudis who were in contact with the hijackers after they arrived in the U.S. knew what they were planning. The document names people the hijackers associated with before they carried out the attacks. It identifies individuals who helped the hijackers get apartments, open bank accounts, attend local mosques and get flight lessons. 

Later investigations found no evidence that the Saudi government or senior Saudi officials knowingly supported those who orchestrated the attacks. But lawmakers and relatives of victims, who don't think all Saudi links to the attackers were thoroughly investigated, campaigned for more than 13 years to get the final chapter of the 2002 congressional inquiry released.
