Rockland family who lost son in Lockerbie bombing wants justice

Signs that the end of Moammar Gadhafi's reign in Libya appears to be nearing is welcome news for those who lost loved ones in the Pan Am Flight 103 bombing two decades ago.

For Barbara and John Zwynenburg, of West Nyack, who lost their son in the airplane bombing over Lockerbie, Scotland, the events in Libya are renewing their calls for justice.

Libyan leader Gadhafi is believed to have ordered the 1988 attack, killing 259 people. The only person convicted in the attack was Abdel Basset al-Megrahi, but he was released from prison.

There are now calls for al-Megrahi to be taken back into custody as Gadhafi's regime crumbles, but so far, Scottish officials have not said whether they will seek to retake him.
