LOCKERBIE

Gordon Brown 'Repulsed' by Bomber's Welcome

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said Tuesday he's "angry" and "repulsed" by the reception the freed Lockerbie bomber received on his return to Libya. Brown refused to say whether he agreed with the decision to release Abdel Basset Ali al-Megrahi, but stressed that he had "no role" in it. Asked whether he though the decision to release the bomber on compassionate grounds was right or wrong, he said that his first thought had been with the families of the victims of the Lockerbie bombings. "I was both angry and I was repulsed by the reception that a convicted bomber guilty of a huge terrorist crime received on his return to Libya," Brown said.
