Lockerbie bombing: who were the 270 people who died in Pan Am Flight 103 disaster - full list

Those who lost their lives in the Lockerbie bombing are being remembered at memorial services

Today marks 34 years since the Lockerbie disaster - the deadliest terror attack in the UK. Pan Am Flight 103 which was enroute to New York exploded mid-air in the skies over Lockerbie, Scotland on 21 December 1988, just after 7pm.

A bomb had been planted in a suitcase, and the flight’s 243 passengers, 16 crew and 11 people on the ground in the town of Lockerbie died as a result.

The atrocity has been in the news once more with Abu Agila Mohammad Mas’ud Kheir Al-Marimi, who is suspected of building the bomb appearing in a federal court in Washington DC. Though Scotland’s Lord Advocate, Dorothy Bain KC, has said he isn’t facing proceedings in Scotland, telling Holyrood though the US and Scotland share criminal jurisdiction for the attack “it was clearly an attack against the United States.”

Bain was due to travel to the US this week to meet with authorities there. The investigation has spanned decades with US and Scottish authorities working together on it. In 2001 Abdelbaset al-Megrahi was convicted of mass murder in a specially convened Scottish Court in the Netherlands. He always maintained his innocence and was released on compassionate ground in 2009 having been diagnosed with terminal cancer. He died in 2012. Libya accepted responsibility for what happened in 2003.

The images of the aftermath and devastation of the disaster were seen on front pages and TV screens around the world, and more than three decades on are still seared into people’s minds. Memorial services will take place to remember the victims, this includes the 34th Pan Am Flight 103 memorial service in the US. It will take place at Arlington Cemetery, and will include a reading of all the names of those who died. Dorothy Bain and US Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco will give speeches. But as those who lost their lives are remembered 34 years on, who were the victims of the Lockerbie bombing?
