Lockerbie bomber dies more than two years after release

(CNN) – Abdelbeset Ali Mohmed al Megrahi, the only person convicted in connection with the Lockerbie bombing that killed 270 people, died Sunday, the Libyan government and a family member said. He was 60.

The former intelligence officer, who had suffered from prostate cancer, will be buried Monday, a foreign ministry spokesman said.

Al Megrahi’s cousin Omer al-Gharyani told CNN he was with al Megrahi at the Tripoli hospital when he died.

His death came more than two years after he was freed from a life sentence in Scotland on the grounds that he was dying…

May his soul rest in perfect peace.

May the souls of Flight #103 rest in perfect peace; may the soul of Mr. al Megrahi expirence the perfect justice of God.
