LONDON - British officials will meet Scottish prosecutors on Monday to arrange a police interview with Libyan defector Moussa Koussa over the Lockerbie bombing, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said.
Former Libyan foreign minister Koussa, an ex-spy chief for Muammar Gaddafi, fled to Britain from war-torn Libya on Wednesday in a coup for Western governments who are backing rebel attempts to oust Gaddafi from power.
Families of some of the 270 people who died when Pan Am flight 103 exploded over the southern Scottish town of Lockerbie in 1988 have demanded that Koussa should be handed over to Scottish police immediately.
Scottish prosecutors have asked to question Koussa, who has been talking with British government officials in an undisclosed location this week.
