Saudi Arabia has again raised the issue of Iran giving shelter to the terrorist leaders involved in the 1996 Alkhobar bombing, and demanded that they be handed over to the Saudi authorities.

The demand was made by Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir during a meeting in Vienna on Friday, in the presence of his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif.

The Kingdom has called for the handover of the terrorists a number of times, but Iran has refused till today, said Al-Jubeir during the conference, which was organized to end the ongoing conflict in Syria.

Observers have said Iran has been implicated for hosting terrorists directly in the June 25, 1996 bombing of the Alkhobar Towers residence at an American military base in the Kingdom, in which 19 American soldiers were killed and 379 people injured.
