New appeal for Lockerbie bomber





Lawyers for Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, who has prostate cancer, said judges at his trial heard insufficient evidence to convict him beyond reasonable doubt.

Megrahi, 57, will not be present at the appeal in Edinburgh, which is expected to last at least four weeks.

A total of 270 people died when the plane exploded over Lockerbie in 1988.
