Khadafy ordered Lockerbie bombing, says Libyan minister

Not that there was ever any doubt.
TRIPOLI, Libya -- Libyan leader Moamar Khadafy personally ordered the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, which exploded over the Scottish town of Lockerbie in 1988, the former Libyan justice minister said in an interview Wednesday with Swedish newspaper Expressen.

"I have evidence that Khadafyordered the Lockerbie attack," Mustapha Abdeljalil said in an interview with the newspaper, after he defected from Ghadafi's crumbling regime in protest against violence used on protesters.

A total of 270 people, mostly Americans, died when the flight blew up over the Scottish town on Dec. 21, 1988.
