Lockerbie Bomber Dies In Libya, Three Years After Being Released

Good riddance! (AFP)

Abdelbaset Ali Mohmet al-Megrahi, the only person convicted over the 1988 Lockerbie bombing which killed 270 people, died on Sunday, almost three years after being freed from jail on compassionate grounds.

"He died an hour ago," his brother Abdelhakim al-Megrahi told AFP, putting the time of death at shortly after 1 pm (1100 GMT).

Megrahi, 60, suffered from prostate cancer and was hospitalised for a few days in April before being sent back home to be with his family.

On April 16, Abdelhakim had said his brother's days "were numbered."

A Scottish court in 2001 convicted the Libyan of the attack on Pan Am flight 103 over the Scottish town of Lockerbie but he was released on compassionate grounds in 2009 after doctors said he had only three months to live.

The Obama Regime had knowledge that this mass murdering terrorist was going to be released, and preferred "compassionate" release rather than him being locked in up a Libyan jail.

So, where does the line start to "water" this terrorist's remains?
