LONDON - Former Libyan foreign minister Moussa Koussa should be questioned over claims he masterminded the 1988 Lockerbie airliner bombing, relatives of those killed and British politicians said on Thursday.

They spoke after Koussa, also the former spy chief for Muammar Gaddafi, defected to Britain on Wednesday, parting ways with the Libyan leader over what a Koussa friend called Gaddafi's attacks on civilians in a conflict with rebels.

Families of those killed when Pam Am Flight 103 exploded over the Scottish town warned that UK Prime Minister David Cameron that no deals should be done to protect Koussa.

While British officials are hoping that he will provide vital military and diplomatic intelligence, campaigners want him to shed light on the bombing which killed 259 people, mostly Americans, on the plane and 11 on the ground.
