Libya - Lockerbie Offer?

NPR Diplomatic Correspondent Vicky O'Hara has details of the reported offer by the Libyan government to compensate the relatives of the victims of the 1988 Pan Am 103 bombing. The attack over Lockerbie, Scotland, left 270 people dead. A lawyer representing some of the victims' families says Libya has offered to pay compensation totaling $2.7 billion. But a spokesman for the Tripoli government Wednesday denied the reported offer.
