The Scottish parliament will announce on Thursday whether it will release the
Libyan man jailed for life for the bombing of a Pan
Am plane over Lockerbie in 1988. The man, Abdelbaset al-Megrahi is suffering from prostate cancer. And a specialist who visited him in prison last month says he only has a short time to live. Peter Hunt reports.

After days of deliberations, the Scottish Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill has reached a decision. The Minister has been grappling with whether or not Megrahi, a convicted mass murderer, should return to Tripoli either on compassionate grounds or to complete his sentence in a Libyan jail. The American government believes he should die behind bars in Scotland. However, it’s expected that Megrahi will be allowed home to die with his family.

He said that rich countries could not keep their CO2 emissions as they are and compensate the rest of the world with money.
