Iran denied any involvement in the Lockerbie bombing in the face of the new allegations it contracted Palestinian and Syrian militants to carry out the attack.
New documents obtained by Al-Jazeera claim to show Iranian militants were behind the 1988 attack that killed 270 people. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham told AFP:
We reject any claims of Iranian involvement in this act of terror. Iran's stance not only on this case but on all terrorist-related issues is quite clear: Iran flatly denies (links) to any act of terror.
