TRIPOLI, Libya, July 26 (UPI) -- Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, the ailing Lockerbie bomber freed by Scotland nearly two years ago, showed up on Libyan TV Tuesday at a pro-government rally in Tripoli.
Al-Megrahi, who was sent home to Libya because he was said to have terminal cancer, appeared frail and was seated in a wheelchair at a gathering in support of embattled Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, The Guardian reported.
The British newspaper said the broadcast, said to be live, showed a Libyan television presenter introducing al-Megrahi at the rally and saying his conviction was the product of a "conspiracy."
Al-Megrahi, a former Libyan intelligence agent, had been expected to live only another three months when he was released from a Scottish prison. He had served nearly eight years of a 27-year sentence for killing 270 people in the 1988 terror attack that blew up Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland while en route from London to New York.
