U.S. okayed nuclear power sharing with Saudi Arabia after Khashoggi death - senator

WASHINGTON, June 4 (Reuters) - The Trump administration granted two authorizations to U.S. companies to share sensitive nuclear power information with Saudi Arabia after the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in October, a U.S. senator said on Tuesday.

Senator Tim Kaine called the approvals “shocking.” The Department of Energy granted the first part 810 authorization on Oct. 18, 16 days after Khashoggi died in a Saudi consulate in Turkey. The second occurred on Feb. 18.
