Lockerbie Bomber Seen at Libya Rally

Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, who was convicted of the 1988 Lockerbie bombing, was seen on a live broadcast of a rally in Tripoli. Megrahi was released from prison in 2009 on "compassionate grounds" after Scottish authorities determined he had only three months to live. During the rally, at which Megrahi appeared in a wheelchair, a presenter suggested that his conviction was the result of an international plot, saying that “half of the world conspired against” him.
