US Advertising campaign on terrorist attacks

WASHINGTON - The United States will this week launch an advertising campaign offering rewards of up to dollars 2m (pounds 1.4m) for information leading to the capture of suspects linked to the terrorist attack on New York's World Trade Center, and the Lockerbie bombing, writes Phil Reeves.

An advertisement over Lockerbie has been booked by the US State Department in this weekend's edition of USA Today, assuring informers that 'information, rumour or suspicion' will be treated confidentially. A second ad, scheduled for Monday's New York Times, targets Ramzi Ahmed Yousef, a suspect in the Trade Center bombing whom the Americans believe may be in Iraq or Pakistan.
