Saturday 18 October 1997
"Never before have the American relatives accepted the concept of trial in a neutral country - they have always demanded the trial take place in the United States under United States law," said Jim Swire, a spokesman for UK Families - Flight 103. Pan Am Flight 103 exploded above Lockerbie, Scotland, in December 1988, killing 259 people on board and 11 on the ground.
