CNN Senior International Correspondent Nic Robertson's quest to locate and interview Abdel Basset al-Megrahi -- known internationally as the Lockerbie bomber -- revealed something much more unexpected.
Though al-Megrahi appeared in a wheelchair at a pro-Gaddafi rally in Libya, Robertson found the ailing Pan Am Flight 103 bomber bedridden at his Tripoli estate, apparently in a coma and surrounded by his family.
"No, there is no doctor, and there is nobody to ask and we don't have any phone line to call anybody," son Khalid al-Megrahi told CNN. On recent demands calling for his father's extradition, he noted: "If you send him to Scotland, he will die by the way, here or there."
