Moussa Koussa interviewed over Lockerbie

Moussa Koussa Prosecutors believe Moussa Koussa may have information about the Lockerbie bombing The former Libyan foreign minister, Moussa Koussa, has been interviewed by Scottish police investigating the Lockerbie bombing, the BBC has learned. Prosecutors believe he has information on the murders of 270 people in the 1988 terrorist attack.
Mr Koussa is believed to have been a senior figure in the Libyan intelligence service when Pan Am flight 103 was blown up over Lockerbie.
Colonel Muammar Gaddafi says Mr Koussa has no information about the bombing.
And in an interview with the BBC's John Simpson earlier this week, the Libyan leader's son - Saif al-Islam Gaddafi - also denied the former foreign minister could reveal anything about the Lockerbie bombing.
He said: "The British and the Americans they know about Lockerbie. There are no secrets anymore.
"We have no secrets to the world."
Last week the former Libyan foreign minister arrived in the UK, saying he was "no longer willing" to work for Col Gaddafi.
His defection came amid continued unrest in Libya.
Colonel Gaddafi accepted Libya's responsibility for the Lockerbie bombing and paid compensation to the victims' families in 2003.
However, he has never admitted personally giving the order for the attack.
Abdelbaset al-Megrahi was jailed in 2001 for the attack.
However, the Libyan was released on compassionate grounds in August 2009 by the Scottish government after being diagnosed with prostate cancer.
