ACCESSION NUMBER:385330 FILE ID:TXT401 DATE:03/30/95 TITLE:REWARD FOR LIBYAN TERRORISTS (03/30/95) TEXT:*95033001.TXT REWARD FOR LIBYAN TERRORISTS (VOA Editorial) (350) (Following is an editorial, broadcast by the Voice of America March 30, expressing the policies of the U.S. government.) The United States is offering a reward of up to four million dollars for information leading to the apprehension of two suspects in the terrorist bombing of Pan American flight 103. Two-hundred seventy men, women, and children were killed when the plane went down over Lockerbie, Scotland, on December 21, 1988. The wanted suspects are Abdel Basset Al-Megrahi, a senior Libyan intelligence officer, and Lamen Khallfa Fhimah, former manager of the Libyan Arab airlines office in Malta. Authorities in the United States and Britain have evidence linking the two men to the suitcase bomb that was used in the Lockerbie bombing. Libyan agents are also being sought by the French government in connection with the bombing of UTA flight 772 in 1989 -- which took the lives of 171 people. Abdel Basset Al-Megrahi is approximately 173 centimeters tall and weighs about 86 kilograms. His hair is black and curly, and he has dark brown eyes and a light brown complexion. He is clean-shaven. Lamen Khalifa Fhimah is approximately 170 centimeters in height, weighs about 86 kilograms, has curly black hair, a light brown mustache, and light brown complexion. Both suspects should be considered armed and dangerous. Individuals with information on these fugitives should contact the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate, or write to: HEROES P.O. Box 96781 Washington, D.C. 20090 U.S.A. The United States will ensure complete confidentiality to people who provide information on past or future acts of terrorism. If appropriate, the United States will relocate people and their families to the United States. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has placed the Lockerbie bombing suspects on its list of "10 most-wanted fugitives." As FBI Assistant 1irector Robert Bryant put it, the United States "will follow them to the ends of the world. We will never quit or leave this case. We are going to stay with it until it is resolved." NNNN .
