A man who lost his daughter in the Lockerbie bombing has urged people to pray for the family of Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, the only man convicted of the attack.
Speaking at a memorial service in Westminster Abbey, Dr Jim Swire said:
When I first met the late Abdelbaset al-Megrahi face to face in Greenock prison, though he was a practising Muslim, he had bought me a Christmas card in the prison shop. In it he had written 'Dr Swire and family, please pray for me and my family'.
He died, my friend.
Over Christmas, if you pray, please pray for his innocent family but also for all those who wrestle with hatred, that they may be healed by God's love.
