Khobar towers bombing lawsuit
Summary of the case
On the night of June 25, 1996, Building 131 in the Khobar Towers complex in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia experienced a shocking bombing attack. U.S. Airmen, primarily assigned to the 440th Wing, were temporarily staying in the building in Saudi Arabia supporting Operation Southern Watch. Though the building was in the process of evacuating due to suspicious signs, 19 Airmen were killed and at least 400 service members and civilians were injured in the explosion.
In 2001, Saudi Arabia refused to extradite any of the eleven people indicted in the U.S. for the bombing, and though they claimed the people were in custody in Saudi prisons, the Saudi government never made the “trial” outcomes public. In 2015, Ahmed al-Mughassil, the man accused of being behind the bombing, was arrested and identified in an American federal indictment as the senior leader of the militant group that wanted to kill U.S. military service members in the Persian Gulf.
In 2006, the U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia found Iran responsible for the attack, with the assistance of a Saudi militant group, and al-Mughassil helped construct the bomb used in the attack. According to U.S officials, the Saudis obstructed the attack investigation because they were trying to repair relations with Iran at the time and did not join America in placing the blame of the bombing on Iran.
