Responsibility Taken for Lockerbie Plane Bomb

May 01, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

The government has accepted responsibility for the 1988 Lockerbie, Scotland, airliner bombing and set up a fund that could total about $2.7 billion to compensate victims' families, Foreign Minister Mohammed Abderrahmane Chalgam said.

The U.S. said the statement did not meet the requirements of U.N. Security Council resolutions, which require Libya to take responsibility, pay compensation and renounce terrorism. The bombing killed 270 people.
