The Clinton Administration began a new push for a global boycott of Libyan oil in an effort to force President Mummar Gadhafi to turn over two suspects in the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. Britain and France, who also want to try the Libyan intelligence officers, have agreed to help. But Secretary of State Warren Christopher, in announcing the plan today, conceded that it would be tough to persuade the rest of Libya's dozen-odd European customers to scrap flourishing oil deals with the country. President Clinton, mindful of pressure by families of the 270 bombing victims, has twice asked the U.N. Security Council to add oil exports to its embargo against Libya.
