A victory, says Libyan TV
Fahimah waves to crowd from aircraft hatch
Fahimah arrived home to a hero's welcome
Libyan television showed live pictures of the man acquitted of taking part in the Lockerbie bombing, Al-Amin Khalifa Fahima, arriving in Tripoli. Here is what the presenter said.

"Fahimah is stepping out of the aircraft showing the victory sign. Yes, we have won this case!


One of the aspects of our victory is our ability to impose our conditions and demands, foremost of which the trial must be held in a neutral country

"One of the aspects of our victory is our ability to impose our conditions and demands, foremost of which the trial must be held in a neutral country, not in America or Britain.

"Al-Amin Khalifah Fahimah, the acquitted Libyan national has arrived here.

"We are certain that the day will come when Abd-al-Basit al-Miqrahi will arrive at this airport following his acquittal.

"We are certain that he will be found not guilty and we are certain that Libyan nationals, as well as the ethics of the international great Fatih revolution, which defends freedom everywhere in the world, could have never been behind such incidents.

"Yes, the day will come, very soon God willing, when Abd-al-Basit al-al-Miqrahi will win his appeal.

"We do trust the impartiality of justice. We do believe that our son and brother is innocent."
