Lockerbie 'a business deal': "A British member of parliament, long sceptical about Libya's involvement in the 1998 Lockerbie bombing, said on Saturday the fact that Tripoli had accepted responsibility for the attack still did not mean it was guilty. MP Tam Dalyell said in an interview with the BBC the Libyans had this week accepted responsibility for the downing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie purely because they were 'desperate to get back into the international trading circuit'." 'It is just a business deal,' Dalyell said."
