LOCKERBIE, SCOTLAND - DECEMBER 23, 1988: (FILE PHOTO) Workers cover the body of a victim of Pan Am flight 103 December 23, 1988 in Lockerbie, Scotland. All 270 passengers and crewmembers on the plane were killed. Two Libyans accused of blowing up Pan Am flight 103, Abdel Basset al-Megrahi and Al-Amin Khalifa Fahima, pleaded not guilty February 2, 2000. U.N. diplomats said August 12, 2003 that the U.S., Britain and Libya have reached an agreement that Muammar al Gadhafi's government would renounce terrorism, provide compensation to the families of the Pan Am victims and accept responsibility for the 1988 mid-air bombing of the plane over Lockerbie, Scotland, which killed more than 270. The $2.7 billion settlement that Libya is expected to pay is about $10 million per victim and will be placed into the U.N-controlled Bank for International Settlements in Switzerland. The three governments met August 11, 2003 in London to discuss how Libya could meet the final requirements needed for the removal of U.N. sanctions imposed after the bombing.
