CIA chief John Brennan said he expects 28 classified pages of a U.S. congressional report into the September 11th attacks on the United States to be published, absolving Saudi Arabia of any responsibility.

The withheld section of the 2002 report is central to a dispute over whether Americans should be able to sue the Saudi government, a key US ally, for damages.

Saudi Arabia denies providing any support for the 19 hijackers - most of whom were Saudi citizens - who killed nearly 3,000 people in the September 11th attacks.
