EDINBURGH (Reuter) - Pan American World Airways is seeking dollars 300m ( pounds 201m) in damages from Libya for the Lockerbie bombing - when one of its jumbo jets was blown up over Scotland in 1988 with the loss of 270 lives. The move comes six days before the five-year time limit for claims expires under Scottish law. The action names Libya, Libyan Arab Airlines and the two Libyans accused by Britain and the United States of planting the bomb.
