Oklahoma City bombing victims will not be allowed to watch arguments on Timothy McVeigh's appeal via a closed-circuit telecast.

In a brief decision, the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday denied prosecutors' request to transmit the telecast to an Oklahoma City auditorium for bombing survivors and victims' relatives who cannot travel to Denver.Oral arguments are scheduled April 28 on McVeigh's appeal of his conviction and death sentence in the April 19, 1995, bombing that killed 168 people and injured hundreds more.

The trials of McVeigh and co-defendant Terry Nichols were shown to bombing victims at a Federal Aviation Administration auditorium in Oklahoma City.

Nichols was convicted of conspiracy and eight counts of involuntary manslaughter. He is awaiting sentencing.
