Libya to allow Lockerbie pair to be quizzed – reports

21 October 2015, 15:07

London - British news reports say Libyan authorities will permit questioning of two suspects in the 1988 bombing of Pan Am flight 103.

A National Salvation government official told BBC on Wednesday that investigators can come to Libya to question the suspects, who are believed to be in prison in Libya on unrelated charges.

Scottish prosecutors said last week there are two new suspects in the bombing that killed 270 people.

Scottish and US authorities have not named the two suspects, but the BBC said officials in Tripoli had identified them as Mohammed Abouajela Masud and Abdullah al-Senoussi.

British authorities investigating the bombing have previously sought to question al-Senoussi, who was deposed Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi’s intelligence chief.

Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, the only man convicted of the bombing, died in 2012 of cancer.
