US claims Libya has not accepted responsibility for Lockerbie bombing.


The US has stated that Libya has not met a UN requirement that it accept responsibility for the 1988 Lockerbie bombing.

The US issued the statement in response to previous reports that a compensation deal for victims of the bombing will be finalised shortly as the Libyan government has accepted responsibility for the bombing on 21 December 1988, which killed 270 people.

The main two conditions that Libya must meet to end the UN sanctions is the statement of responsibility and a separate arrangement to compensate the families of the people who died.
