The Libyan government prepares to "accept responsibility" for the 1988 bombing of a Pan Am jet over Lockerbie, Scotland, and establish a $2.7 billion compensation fund for families of the 270 victims. Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi hopes the move will lead to improved relations with the United States. NPR's Michele Kelemen reports.
