Lockerbie Trial of Pan Am Flight 103 Bombing

May 10, 2000

At Camp Zeist in the Netherlands today, prosecutors in the trial of the two Libyans charged with the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie called a number of civilians and police constables to testify on the recovery of items from the December 21, 1988 bombing. The prosecutors say this will lay the groundwork for the case against the two defendants. The two Libyans are charged with the murders of 270 people — including 189 Americans.
