The accused mastermind of the September 11, 2001, attacks has indicated a willingness to be deposed by victims who are suing Saudi Arabia for damages, if the United States decides not to seek the death penalty against him.

RNA - Khalid Sheikh Mohammed's offer was disclosed in a Friday filing in the victims’ federal lawsuit in New York.

The lawsuit accuses the Saudi government of helping coordinate the terror attacks. Nearly three thousand people were killed after hijacked airplanes crashed into New York’s World Trade Center, the Pentagon outside Washington, and a Pennsylvania field in September 2001.

Nineteen hijackers were involved in the raids, 15 of whom were Saudi nationals. But Riyadh has denied any complicity.
