The man who threw an egg at Saudi Arabia’s General Ahmed Asiri in London in March is facing trial in a UK court, the general said in an interview with Al Arabiya News Channel’s general manager Turki Aldakhil.
Asiri was refering to an incident where an egg was thrown at him when he attended a seminar organized by the European Council on Foreign Relations in London in March. Asiri was asked to comment about the incident in an interview that was televised on Sunday evening.
Turki Aldakhil asked the General, who is the spokesman for Arab coalition in Yemen, whether he had used his fists to tackle the British heckler as alleged by some media outlets.
But Asiri said he would not comment on the incident as it was being investigated, adding that the man accused of the incident faced trial in the British courts.
The Saudi Embassy in London is following up with the ongoing developments in the matter, Asiri added.
