    I don't think this comes as to much of a shock.

    The Associated Press: Report: Ex-minister says Gadhafi ordered Lockerbie

    STOCKHOLM (AP) — Swedish tabloid Expressen says Libya's ex-justice minister claims Moammar Gadhafi personally ordered the Lockerbie bombing that killed 270 people in 1988.

    Abdel-Jalil stepped down as justice minister to protest the violence against anti-government demonstrations.

    He told Expressen Gadhafi gave the order to Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, the only man convicted in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, which killed all 259 people on board and 11 on the ground.
