British PM Orders Review on Lockerbie Bomber’s Release

British Prime Minister David Cameron has ordered a review of his government’s documentation on the release of the Lockerbie bomber after meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama.

Mr. Cameron on Tuesday asked his Cabinet secretary to consider releasing additional information from an earlier investigation of Libyan Abdel Baset al-Megrahi’s release. However, the prime minister said he would not open a new probe.

During his first official visit to the White House, Mr. Cameron rejected U.S. calls for an investigation into whether oil giant BP advocated for the bomber’s release. He said there is no sign British-based BP lobbied authorities to release al-Megrahi to go home to Libya.
