  • Uber CEO downplays Khashoggi murder, then walks back his comments ars_ab.settitle(1600019)

His dismembered body has not been located so far.

A self-driving Uber test vehicle struck and killed a female pedestrian in the accident in Tempe, Arizona.

In his interview with Axios, Khosrowshahi said people make mistakes, and it doesn't mean they can never be forgiven. The Axios interviewer, Mike Allen, asked if Yasir Othman Al-Rumayyan, who heads Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund, should be allowed to remain on Uber's board.

Axios had been asking Khosrowshahi about his attendance at the Saudi summit nicknamed "Davos in the Desert." and the company's close financial ties to the kingdom. "It's unclear if his clarification will fix the damage with some customers and on Monday, "#BoycottUber" started trending on Twitter.

Dara Khosrowshahi, chief executive of Uber Technologies, was forced to quickly backtrack after calling the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi a "mistake", comparing it to a fatal crash by one of his company's self-driving cars.

Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, pictured, was last seen alive in October 2018, when he went to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to collect papers he needed to marry Hatice Cengiz, a Turkish citizen. "With self-driving, and we stopped driving and we're recovering from that mistake", he added.

"We've made mistakes too, right?" It doesn't mean that they can never be forgiven. "I think they have taken it seriously".

"They're just like any other shareholder", Khosrowshahi said. The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) released a report about Uber's self-driving auto last week which found that Uber's self-driving system "did not include a consideration for jaywalking pedestrians".

"I didn't read that part of the Central Intelligence Agency report", Khosrowshahi said. He called Khashoggi's murder "reprehensible" and said it "should not be forgotten".

Khosrowshahi did not attend this year's conference either, despite the fact that Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund is one of Uber's largest shareholders. This year, he also did not attend - not because of Khashoggi, but because of what he said was a board meeting coincidentally scheduled "years ahead" of time that he could not miss or reschedule.

But when probed by Axios if he would have gone if the two had not clashed Khosrowshahi replied: 'I don't know if I would have'.

The CIA and some Western governments have said they believe the crown prince ordered Khashoggi's killing.

An audio recording of Khashoggi's final moments, heard by United Nations investigators, apparently reveals how his killers discussed cutting his body into pieces, before accosting Khashoggi who died amid "sounds of a struggle".

U.S. and United Nations officials suspect that Saudi Arabia's Prince Mohammed bin Salman played a role in Mr Khashoggi's death, but the Kingdom denies it.

After finally acknowledging that Khashoggi had died in the building, Saudi officials then claimed he had died accidentally during a brawl. The Saudi government has described the murder as a rogue operation and said the the crown prince had no prior knowledge.
