Lockerbie bomber had 'three months to live'... now he's well enough to go home

Breaking News

The row over the release of the Lockerbie bomber was reignited last night after it emerged he has been released from hospital.

Abdelbaset Al Megrahi was freed from a Scottish jail on compassionate grounds in August after a medical assessment concluded he had only three months to live because of his prostate cancer.

But the 57-year-old former Libyan intelligence agent and his family now say that, while weak and terminally ill, he is not close to death, and continues to work on clearing his name.
