New Lockerbie investigation being prepared

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Nobody ever thought convicted bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi acted alone. (Speaking of, he's no longer "within days" of dying, again. What a miracle, again.) The new Libyan government has indicated they are ready for British police to visit to continue the investigation of both the Lockerbie bombing as well as the murder of a police officer outside of the Libyan embassy in London. It would be nice to have final closure on those events. The Guardian:

The new Libyan government has given British police the green light to mount fresh investigations into the Lockerbie bombing and the shooting of PC Yvonne Fletcher, the British foreign minister Alistair Burt has said.

In an interview with the Guardian, Burt said on Thursday he had been told officially during a two-day visit to Tripoli that Libya's interior minister in the new government, sworn in last weekend, had promised to co-operate by allowing detectives into the country to reopen their investigations.

The interior minister, Fawzy Abdel Aal, had agreed to "the early return of the Dumfries and Galloway police in relation to Lockerbie", Burt said.
