9th anniversary of Lockerbie


Edinburgh - Scotland's top prosecutor should stand down from having a role in deciding whether two Libyans accused of the Lockerbie bombing should be tried in Britain, Lab our MP Tam Dalyell has said. He was speaking at an Edinburgh news conference at which relatives of the victims of the disaster launched a petition to parliament to get Britain to agree to the two men being tried in a neutral country.

Yesterday was the ninth anniversary of the outrage in which 270 people died when a bomb blew Pan Am Flight 103 out of the skies 31,000 feet over the Scottish town.
