The Trump administration granted two authorizations to US companies to share sensitive nuclear power information with Saudi Arabia after the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in October, a US senator said on Tuesday.

Senator Tim Kaine [D-VA] 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.
