Libya: We'll allow quizzing of Lockerbie suspect

Posted:
LONDON (AP) - Libyan Justice Minister Salah Margani says his government will allow U.S. and British investigators to question Abdullah al-Senoussi, Gadhafi's notorious spymaster, over the Lockerbie bombing.

The former intelligence chief is accused of complicity in the 1988 bombing of a Pan Am airliner over Lockerbie, Scotland, in which 270 people died.

Libyan intelligence officer Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, who died last year, is the only person convicted in the attack, but many questions surrounding the bombing, who ordered it, and how it was carried out remain unanswered. If Libya were responsible for the atrocity, al-Senoussi could be a critical source of information.

Margani told Britain's ITV News on Tuesday that it was "the intention" to allow investigators to question al-Senoussi.

Britain's Foreign Office said it could offer no comment until Wednesday.
