The bombing aboard Pan Am Flight 103 killed all 259 passengers, along with 11 people on the ground. The plane exploded above Lockerbie, Scotland.

Al-Megrahi was imprisoned for life but was released in 2009 on compassionate grounds after he developed prostate cancer. He died in 2012.

FBI and Scottish police are now seeking permission to interview both Libyans in Tripoli, according to the BBC.
