Lockerbie Bomber Gives 'Last Interview'

After this, we will hear from Lockerbie Bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi no more. In what he insists will be his last interview before he dies, al-Megrahi tell the UK Press Association, "I am an innocent man. I am about to die and I ask now to be left in peace with my family." He claims to have never met or seen the witness shopkeeper who helped identify him at his trial. Megrahi was released from a Scottish prison in 2009 on compassionate grounds after he was diagnosed with cancer. However, he has outlived his three-month prognosis at the time.
