Victims of Libyan-sponsored terrorism protest Qaddafi's UN visit

Relatives of victims of the Lockerbie bombing and other terrorist atrocities, including the September 11th terrorist attacks, will protest at the United Nations in New York when Colonel Muammar el-Qaddafi addresses the general assembly. Called a "massive demonstration" by the President of Victims of Pan Am 103, the protest is in opposition to the Libyan leader being welcomed on American soil following the release of Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi, the Libyan man convicted of the 1988 Lockerbie bombing.
