Lockerbie bomber Megrahi has died in Tripoli
A son says the former Libyan intelligence officer who was the only person ever convicted in the 1988 Lockerbie
bombing has died in Tripoli.
Abdelbaset al-Megrahi was convicted in the bombing of a PanAm flight over Scotland that killed 270 people but was released in 2009
from his Scottish prison on humanitarian grounds.
Al-Megrahi suffered from prostate cancer. His death was announced Sunday by his son, Khaled.
