The mother of a young aspiring actress who was killed in the Lockerbie bombing said she hoped convicted terrorist Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi had died "a painful, horrible death".
Susan Cohen's daughter Theodora, 20, was on board Pan Am flight 103 bound for John F Kennedy airport in New York when it exploded over Lockerbie in Scotland in 1988.
Martin Cadman, from Norfolk, whose son Bill died in the flight at the age of 32, said:
Jim Swire, whose daughter Flora was killed in the bombing, said the reported death was a "very sad event":
The brother of Lockerbie bomber Abdel Basset al-Megrahi says he was too weak to talk as his health deteriorated suddenly. Abdulhakim told Reuters:
"He was too sick to utter anything on his deathbed. We want people to know he was innocent - he was battling with the disease for months now...his health got really bad last night."
The bombing of the plane, travelling from London to New York four days before Christmas 1988, killed all 259 people on board.
Eleven residents of the Dumfries and Galloway town also died after the plane crashed down on their homes.
It was Britain's biggest terrorist atrocity.
After protracted international pressure, Megrahi was put on trial under Scots law at Camp Zeist in the Netherlands.
He was found guilty in 2001 of mass murder and was ordered to serve a minimum of 27 years behind bars.
Despite claims that he could not have worked alone, and the lingering suspicion by some that he was innocent, Megrahi was the only man ever convicted over the terrorist attack.
He was freed from prison after serving nearly eight years of his sentence after he dropped his second appeal against conviction at the Court of Criminal Appeal in Edinburgh.
The Foreign Office says it is investigating unconfirmed reports the Lockerbie bomber has died.
