The United States files an indictment against the Libyan “Abo Aqila Masoud” in the “Lockerbie” case.

On Tuesday, the United States filed an indictment against a former Libyan intelligence agent named “Abo Aqila Muhammad Masoud” suspected of making the bomb that led to the bombing of “Pan-Am Flight 103” over the Scottish town of Lockerbie in 1988.

32 years after the disaster, US Attorney General William Barr said that Abo Aqila faces charges related to terrorist crimes, and that Masoud led the attack on the plane on the orders of the leader Muammar Gaddafi, according to the BBC.

In the same context, Attorney General William Barr said that the development that led to the issuance of accusations came after the authorities learned that the suspect was being held in Libya, noting that the Libyan authorities handed over a copy of the interview with Massoud to US officials.

It is worth noting that 270 people were killed, including 190 American citizens, in the bombing of a “Boeing 747” plane, over the Scottish town of Lockerbie in 1988.
