'Many unanswered questions' over Megrahi

A victim's relative has said she is not surprised at the decision to free the Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi, who is being released from prison on compassionate grounds.

Megrahi has terminal cancer and wants to go home to Libya.

Jean Berkley, the mother of a victim of the Lockerbie bombing, said the decision has left bereaved families with ''something of a mystery''.
