The Libyan Responsible for Lockerbie Bombing Dies

The Libyan who was responsible of taking the lives of 270 people in 1988 has died.

Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, who was the only the person convicted of Lockerbie bombing over the skies of Scotland, died of cancer at his home in the capital city of Tripoli. Merghai was released from the prison by a Scottish judge in 2009 on a compassionate basis. The release sparked a major outcry all over the world.

British Prime Minister David Cameron attending NATO summit in Chicago had no words of sympathy to the family of Megrahi but was reported to have said that “he should have never been freed”.

Megrahi never took responsibility of the bombing the Pan Am flight 103 in December 1988. He was a spy for the Libyan military intelligence.
