The head of Scotland's government is denying suggestions there was any conspiracy with oil giant BP over the release of the convicted Lockerbie bomber.
Abdel Baset al-Megrahi was released from prison last year on grounds that he was ill with terminal cancer and would die within months. He returned to his native Libya, where he is still alive today.
The Obama administration criticized al-Megrahi's release at the time, and this week the White House again called for an investigation into the circumstances surrounding it.
On a visit to the U.S. this week, British Prime Minister David Cameron criticized the release, too, but he said he will not call for a formal investigation.
Congress holds hearings on the matter next week -- with some U.S. Senators contending that BP pressured British officials for al-Megrahi's release in exchange for a deal on drilling rights in Libya.
Stephanie Bernstein's husband, Michael, was on Pan Am Flight 103 when it blew up over Scotland in 1988 -- 270 people were killed.
Bernstein, a Minnesota native, has been following the developments closely.
