The Obama administration said that it will keep in mind the "raw sensitivities" of the families of Lockerbie bombing victims as it tries to find a residence for Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi when he visits the United States to attend the UN General Assembly next month. State Department spokesman Ian Kelly said Tuesday the administration is aware of concerns that Gadhafi might stay at a Libyan-owned estate in the New Jersey suburb of Englewood. The estate is near the homes of some of the families of victims of the 1998 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Scotland. Local officials and residents have protested those plans in the wake of a Libyan hero's welcome last week for the lone man convicted in the attack, but Kelly said no decision has yet been made Gadhafi's stay.
