BREAKING: Lockerbie bomber has died, brother reports; Update: Reaction; Update: Son confirms death

The Lockerbie bomber, Abel Baset al-Megrahi, is dead. Three years after a judge in Scotland released him from jail on “compassionate grounds.” The 270 people he killed received no such compassion. From BBC News:

Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, the only person convicted over the 1988 Lockerbie bombing above Scotland which killed 270 people, has died at his home in the Libyan capital Tripoli.

Megrahi, 59, was convicted by a special court in the Netherlands in 2001.

He was released from prison in Scotland in 2009 on compassionate grounds. He was suffering from cancer and was said to have only months to live.

When he returned to the Libyan capital, he received a hero’s welcome.

Shortly before being freed, Megrahi dropped his second appeal against his conviction.

His release sparked the fury of many of the relatives of the victims of the Lockerbie disaster.

A hero’s welcome; vile. He’s “welcomed” somewhere else now.
