Lockerbie trial hopes soar.

LIBYA could hand over the two men accused of the Lockerbie bombing within a matter of weeks, it was announced yesterday by Nelson Mandela's envoy.

The president's close aide, Professor Jakes Gerwell, has had key talks in Tripoli and has managed to convince Colonel Gaddafi to put the two men on trial in the Hague.

Gaddafi also agreed Libyans Abdel al Megrahi and Lamen Khalifa should be tried under Scots law but has since been stalling. One sticking points is believed to be where they would serve their sentence if found guilty. The UN Security Council is to meet next month to discuss the deadlock.
