Ex-Libyan minister: Gaddafi gave Lockerbie bombing order

STOCKHOLM — Swedish tabloid Expressen says Libya's ex-justice minister claims Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi personally ordered the Lockerbie bombing that killed 270 people in 1988.
Expressen on Wednesday quoted Mustafa Abdel-Jalil as telling their correspondent in Libya that "I have proof that Gaddafi gave the order about Lockerbie." He didn't describe the proof.
Abdel-Jalil stepped down as justice minister to protest the violence against anti-government demonstrations.
