NPR's Ted Clark reports that the United States and Britain agreed to a trial in Holland for the two Libyan suspects in the 1988 bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. In the past, Libya's leader Moammar Khaddafi said he would not object to a trial of the two Libyan agents if it was held in a third country. But so far there has been no reply from the Libyan leader. If he does not agree to such a trial, US officials say they will push for an international oil embargo.
