Lockerbie

Julie McCarthy reports from the Netherlands on today's developments in the trial of two Libyans accused of the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. Defense attorneys demanded that the United States produce more classified documents relating to a star prosecution witness, Abdul Majid Giaka. The court today saw previously blacked-out passages of CIA cables about Giaka, a Libyan informer. The defense said those passages cast doubt on Giaka's credibility. The prosecution wants to use Giaka to link the defendants to the bombing, which left 270 people dead.
