The US administration released 13,173 documents on the Kennedy assassination under the orders of US President Joe Biden.

Before this, the National Archives of the United States published these documents on December 15.

According to a BBC news, about 90 percent of the documents held by the United States about this murder have been opened. The documents will be online from now on.

According to a law passed in 1992, the US government was obliged to release all documents related to the Kennedy assassination by 2017. But that law was not obeyed. Later, President Joe Biden ordered the release of the documents in an executive order on August 15. At the same time, he asked to keep certain documents confidential for fear of causing ‘identifiable damage’.

Incidentally, John F. Kennedy was shot and killed in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963 while he was the president of the United States. The said murder was investigated for a long time. These documents are the results of those investigations.

Meanwhile, US National Archives officials said that 515 documents are fully classified and 2,545 documents are partially classified.
