The Libyan rebels' interim government says it will not deport the man convicted of the 1988 Lockerbie bombing. The rebel Justice Minister Mohammed al-Alagi told journalists in Tripoli Sunday that no Libyan citizen would be deported, even Abdel-Baset al-Megrahi, who was convicted in a Scottish court and imprisoned for the bombing of Pan Am flight 103, which killed 270 people, but then released due to sickness.(AP Photo, File)

He was 60.
