Libya has offered to let two of its citizens stand trial for the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland -- but under certain conditions, a Scottish newspaper reported. According to the Scotsman, of Edinburgh, Libyan authorities suggested to a visiting British lawmaker that two suspected Libyan intelligence agents be tried in a third country. But Britain, which has already charged the two men, rejected the offer unless Libyan capo Muammar Gaddafi allows the proceedings on British or U.S. soil. Why's Libya reaching out now? Gaddafi reportedly wants to rid the strapped country of U.N. sanctions imposed in 1992 after his government refused to hand over the suspects.
