Lockerbie and 9/11 feature at Festival

ONE of the hottest issues the Scottish Government has faced, the Lockerbie and Megrahi saga, will be aired at the Festival of Spirituality and Peace today (Monday 8 August).

Dr Jim Swire, spokesperson for the relatives of the Lockerbie victims, along with Professor Richard Black QC and all the members of the Justice for Megrahi Committee, will attend a public question and answer session following the only summer performance of David Benson's acclaimed and controversial play, 'Lockerbie: Unfinished Business' at St John's Church, Princes Street, from 4pm.

Meanwhile, at 10.30am, also at St John's, journalist and author Yasmin Alibhai Brown discusses the post 9/11 world, the democratic Arab revolutions, and Samuel Huntingdon's 'clash of civilisations' thesis, along with David Pratt, foreign editor of the Sunday Herald newspaper.
