Lockerbie: Libya orders probe into suspect handover to US

Jalel Harchaoui, associate fellow at defence thinktank the Royal United Services Institute, said Mr Masud was taken from Libya and handed to US officials in Malta. He said: "The Americans were waiting for delivery of their gift and basically took the person. "The delivery happened outside of Libya, so the foreign states are fine because nobody can blame them for intruding physically on Libyan soil. "It doesn't matter from the US perspective where the suspect was gotten and how he was gotten."
