Scottish detectives have reopened the investigation into the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland in December 1988 in which 270 people were killed, Sky News reported on Sunday. Evidence will be reexamined although the only person convicted for taking part in the deadly attack, Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, was released on compassionate grounds by the government in August. An official involved in this most recent step told the news agency that the decision was based on the fact that while Megrahi was the only individual found guilty of involvement, Scottish authorities had always known that others had participated and would pursue information in this area.
