CNN is reporting on their broadcasting right now that Lockerbie Bomber Abdel Baset al-Megrahi will be given a "compassionate release" from his life sentence as he is dying from terminal prostrate cancer.
Scottish Justice Minister Kenny MacAskill "has informed families and other interested parties that he has reached his decisions on the applications for prisoner transfer and compassionate release," a government statement said.
Sky News, citing unnamed sources, reported Wednesday that al-Megrahi will be released from prison on compassionate grounds.
I had read earlier that he wanted to spend "one last Ramadan" with his family before Allah calls him home.
Really? Those people on December 21, 1988 on Pan Am Flight 103 were looking forward to spending Christmas with theirs . . .
