"Abdelbasset al-Megrahi, the Libyan intelligence officer accused of bombing Pan Am flight 103 over the Scottish town of Lockerbie in 1988, has died, according to his brother. "



he 59 year-old died at home in Tripoli after a long battle with cancer his brother Abdelhakim al-Megrahi told Reuters on Sunday.

"He died an hour ago," he said, putting the time of death at shortly after 1.00 pm (1100 GMT).

Megrahi was convicted in 2001 of the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 as it flew to New York from London. All 259 people aboard the airliner were killed and 11 others on the ground in the Scottish town of Lockerbie died from falling wreckage.

The Libyan terrorist survived for almost three years after a doctor said he had only months to live and he was released on "compassionate" grounds from a Scottish prison.

Britain freed him in 2009 on compassionate grounds because he was suffering from advanced terminal prostate cancer and thought to have months to live.
