Scottish prosecutors say they have identified two new Libyan suspects in the 1988 bombing of a passenger Pan Am flight over the town of Lockerbie.

The prosecutors have made a formal request to Libyan authorities to allow American and Scottish detectives to interview the suspects in Tripoli.

“Scottish and US prosecutors agreed that there is a proper basis in law in Scotland and the United States to entitle Scottish and US investigators to treat two Libyans as suspects”, a government statement said.
