THE WEEK AHEAD

NEW YORK : Latest on Lockerbie

August 10, 1993

The U.N. Security Council next week is to review sanctions imposed against Libya in April, 1992, after Tripoli refused to hand over two suspects in the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 to either the United States or Britain.

Libya has offered to turn the pair over to a neutral third country for trial and to pay compensation if they are found guilty of the crime, which killed 270 people. But the Security Council has said that is not good enough.

On Monday, Ibrahim Mohammed Bashari, Libya's delegate to the Arab League, told Egypt's state-run news agency that Tripoli has taken steps toward satisfying U.N. demands. However, he did not elaborate.
