Sensitive classified documents pertaining to the assassination of John F Kennedy had been due for release.
Back in 2017, former President Donald Trump released thousands of previously classified files on the assassination, however several others were withheld due to security concerns.
While these remaining files had been due for release, the White House has now confirmed that it will not be making them available to the public until December 15th, 2022.
According to reports, this is due to how the pandemic has delayed efforts to review the documents.
President Joe Biden has also weighed in on the matter, stating that the delay is "necessary to protect against identifiable harm to the military defense, intelligence operations, law enforcement, or the conduct of foreign relations".
The original investigation into the assassination of John F Kennedy has long been criticized for being incomplete, with many arguing that Lee Harvey Oswald had not acted alone.
Whether or not the unreleased files contain evidence of this however remains to be seen.
