Lockerbie Bomber Hospitalized

It appears as though the Lockerbie bomber might actually be at death’s door, despite speculation over the last year that he was faking it. Abdulbasit al-Megrahi, a former Libyan intelligence officer who was convicted in 2001 of the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, has been taken to the hospital, his brother confirmed to Reuters. "His health began to deteriorate quickly ... so [we] took him immediately to the hospital where he is receiving a blood transfusion," he said. Britain freed Megrahi in 2009 as he was suffering from terminal prostate cancer and seemed to have only months to live.
