Lockerbie bomb document bid fails

Breaking News

The man convicted of the Lockerbie bombing has failed in his latest attempt to persuade judges that secret documents should be handed over.

Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi claims the documents could assist his appeal over the 1988 massacre.

The documents were issued by a foreign government to prosecutors before Megrahi's trial but have never been seen by the defence.

Further attempts are likely to be made for the documents to be released.

Appeal Court judges issued their ruling on Friday.
