The leader of a militant Palestinian group denied charges by a man claiming to be an Iranian defector that the group was involved in the 1988 bombing of a Pan Am jet over Lockerbie, Scotland. Ahmed Jibril, head of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine — General Command, said the charge was “fabricated by the United States to pressure the Palestinian opposition, especially our group which opposes the so-called Palestinian-Israeli peace negotiations.”
