Cardinal backs Megrahi inquiry call

The leader of the Roman Catholic Church in Scotland has backed calls for an inquiry into the Lockerbie bomber's conviction as a campaign group handed over a petition to MSPs.

Cardinal Keith O'Brien said that without such a probe, the "web of mystery" surrounding the "horrible" bombing may never be resolved.

He spoke out as campaigners calling for an inquiry into the conviction of Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi took their case to the Scottish Parliament.
