US: Death of Lockerbie Bomber Won't Stop Investigation


The United States said, Sunday evening, that the death of Abdel Basset Al-Megrahi - the only person convicted in the 1988 bombing of a Pan American jet over Lockerbie, Scotland - ended an unhappy period that followed his release from prison, three years ago.

At the same time, a spokesman for the National Security Council made ​​it clear that Washington will continue with new partners in Libya to seek justice for the 270 victims of the attack. Libya's temporary transition council also made ​​it clear that the investigation of the explosion over Lockerbie will not stop following the death of Al-Megrahi.
