An overview of the evidence for the conviction of Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi, who was convicted of bombing Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie. Was the conviction safe? See what you think.


It was originally intended as an infographic. But the information proved too dense & too detailed to form into a visual style.

I did my best but I think it’s come out looking like something the NYT would’ve printed 7 years ago :((

I’ve combed through over 600 pages of fascinating legal documents to compile this. Your comments and corrections are appreciated.

As ever, reading this stuff challenged my preconceptions and ideas about the case. And made me appreciate the passionate struggle of the Lockerbie families for the truth.
