The bomb that brought down Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland was a joint effort between Libya and Abu Nidal, according to a senior defector from Abu Nidal's group, Atef Abu Bakr.
In an interview conducted with Abu Bakr in Prague and published today by the pan-Arab daily Al-Hayat, Abu Bakr adds that the bomb was assembled in Lebanon by the Scientific Committee of Abu Nidal's faction, sent to Tripoli and then onto Malta before being placed aboard Pan Am 103.
Abu Bakr also claims the UTA bomb went through the same process.
