Locker­bie bomber buried in Libya

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

THE only man con­victed over the 1988 Locker­bie bomb­ing has been buried with lit­tle fan­fare near the Libyan cap­i­tal. There were just un­der 100 fam­ily mem­bers and passers-by in at­ten­dance at the fu­neral of Ab­del­baset al-me­grahi. The quiet fu­neral in­tripoli stands in stark con­trast to the hero’s wel­come Me­grahi re­ceived three years ago from his pa­tron, dic­ta­tor Muam­mar Gaddafi, upon his re­turn to Libya af­ter serv­ing eight years of a life sen­tence in Scot­land.
