Lockerbie investigation to continue
Libya is expected to open its files on the Lockerbie bombing which happened 24 years ago.
JOHANNESBURG - Libya is about to open its files on the Lockerbie bombing, revealing what really happened before a Pan Am jumbo plane crashed over Scotland 24 years ago, killing 270 people.
Libya's ambassador to the United Nations in Tripoli says it will be at least a year before the country can release the information it has.
Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi, who was found guilty of planting the bomb on the plane, died earlier in 2012.
He had been released on compassionate grounds by the Scottish government after serving jail time there.
So far, he is the only person to have been convicted of the terror attack directed by Muammar Gaddafi.
Scottish police hope to pursue other suspects in Libya following the country's revolution and Gaddafi's downfall.
Gaddafi was killed by rebels in October 2011, following months of bloodshed in that country.
