Lockerbie bomber appears at pro-Gadhafi rally
TRIPOLI — The Libyan man convicted in the 1988 Lockerbie bombing attended a pro-Gadhafi rally, and Libyan state TV images showing the bomber in a wheelchair in a crowd in Tripoli revived criticism in Britain on Wednesday of the decision to grant him early release on medical grounds.
Abdel Baset al-Megrahi’s presence at Tuesday’s rally appeared to be another sign of defiance by the embattled regime of Col. Moammar Gadhafi, locked in a civil war with anti-government rebels for the past five months.
He was released from a Scottish prison in 2009 after being diagnosed with prostate cancer, and at the time was given three months to live. Al-Megrahi returned to a hero’s welcome in Libya later that year.
Nation demands peace treaty with U.S.
SEOUL — North Korea demanded Wednesday that the United States sign a peace treaty formally ending the Korean War, as a senior North Korean diplomat visited New York to negotiate ways to restart six-nation nuclear disarmament talks.
In an editorial marking the 58th anniversary of an armistice that ended the 1950-53 war, the North’s official Korean Central News Agency insisted a peace treaty could go a long way toward resolving a deadlock over Pyongyang’s pursuit of nuclear weapons.
North Korea has long called for a peace treaty with the United States. The armistice left the Korean peninsula in a technical state of war.
Its latest push comes as North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye Gwan makes a fresh attempt to reopen six-nation talks that were last held in December 2008.
