LONDON (AP) - The convicted Lockerbie bomber claims to have new evidence on the 1988 attack on Pan Am Flight 103 that he says could clear his name.
Abdel Baset al-Megrahi was convicted in 2001 over the attack, which killed 270 people. He was freed from a Scottish jail on compassionate grounds in August 2009 after doctors estimated he had only three months to live due to cancer.
In an interview published in British newspapers Thursday, al-Megrahi protested his innocence and claimed testimony from a Maltese shopkeeper was flawed.
Prosecutors said al-Megrahi had bought clothes in Malta that were later packed around the bomb.
