2 suspects identified in 1988 bombing of Flight Pan Am 103

Two Libyans have been identified as suspects in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, which crashed in the Scottish town of Lockerbie in December 1988, killing 270 people.

A spokesman for the Scottish prosecution service said: "The Lord Advocate and the US Attorney General have recently agreed that there is a proper basis in law in Scotland and the United States to entitle Scottish and US investigators to treat two Libyans as suspects in the continuing investigation into the bombing of flight Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie."

The spokesman added: "The Lord Advocate has today, therefore, issued an International Letter of Request to the Libyan Attorney General in Tripoli which identifies the two Libyans as suspects in the bombing of flight Pan Am 103. The Lord Advocate and the US Attorney General are seeking the assistance of the Libyan judicial authorities for Scottish police officers and the FBI to interview the two named suspects in Tripoli."

The identities of the suspects have not yet been disclosed.
