Legal victory in Lockerbie appeal

Breaking News

The Lockerbie bomber has won the latest round of his long-running legal battle to overturn his conviction.

Appeal judges refused to put a limit on Abdelbaset al-Megrahi's list of objections to the trial which convicted him of Scotland's worst mass murder.

Al-Megrahi was convicted of the 1988 atrocity, which killed 270 people.

The 56-year-old Libyan has already lost an appeal against his 2001 conviction but the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission (SCCRC) ordered another.
