DUBAI (Reuters) - A Saudi court has jailed at least 13 men on counts including the recruitment of al Qaeda militants for the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States and sheltering Osama bin Laden in Pakistan, Saudi newspapers said on Tuesday.

Most of the 19 hijackers in the Sept. 11 attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people, and some of the victims' families are pursuing a lawsuit accusing Saudi Arabia of providing material support to al Qaeda, a charge which Riyadh denies.
