Lockerbie Settlement

Fifteen years ago, Pan Am Flight 103 blew up over Lockerbie, Scotland, killing all 259 people on board and 11 more on the ground. A deal has been reached with the families of the victims to provide restitution and settle responsibility for the bombing. NPR's Neal Conan leads a discussion on the settlement and its implications.
