Ahmed Jabril, leader of a group suspected of bombing Pan Am Flight 103, denied in an interview with ABC News that his organization had any role in the attack that killed 270 people in December. But Jabril acknowledged that his group routinely used the same kind of bomb investigators say was used to blow up the jumbo jet over Lockerbie, Scotland. Jabril said a confederate, Hafez Dalkamoni, commonly built and used the type of device, a bomb-rigged radio-cassette recorder, that downed the Pan Am jet. Dalkamoni is in a West German jail after a police raid last October that netted three devices like the one used to blow up Flight 103. Jabril heads the Syrian-backed Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command.
