Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Robert F Kennedy’s assassin Sirhan denied parole in California” – below is their description.

California Governor Gavin Newsom has denied parole for the man who assassinated US presidential candidate Robert Kennedy in 1968.

Sirhan Sirhan, a Palestinian refugee, has been serving a life sentence for the killing and Newsom said he was not certain that Sirhan was no longer a threat to the community.

Robert Kennedy’s murder came just five years after his older brother President John F Kennedy was killed in Texas.
