Lockerbie Summation

NPR's Julie McCarthy reports from the Lockerbie trial in The Netherlands that the case against two Libyans accused of bombing Pan Am Flight 103 now rests in the hands of the three judges. Defense attorneys concluded their summation today, and the presiding judge called a recess. The defense said the prosecution case against the Libyans was "incoherent" and failed to eliminate reasonable doubt about the men's guilt. The special Scottish court will convene again on Tuesday, when the judges will give a progress report on their deliberations.
