Bomber dying

THE health of the Lockerbie bomber, who has terminal prostate cancer, has swiftly deteriorated since his release from a Scottish prison less than two weeks ago, a senior Libyan official has said.

The head of the Libyan State Information Agency, Majid al-Dursi, said Abdel Baset al-Megrahi is in the hospital and described him as “very sick”.

“His health is deteriorating fast since he arrived,” al-Dursi said. Asked how long al-Megrahi could still have to live, he answered: “Only God knows when it will be over. But he is dying now.”
