COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — A sister of a man killed in the 1988 Lockerbie bombing says that the families of the victims can move forward following the death of Moammar Gadhafi.
Lisa Gibson lives in Colorado Springs and her 20-year-old brother, Ken, was among 270 people killed in the attack on the Pan Am flight over Scotland. She met Gadhafi in 2009 when he visited New York to attend the U.N. General Assembly.
Gibson said Thursday that she’s tried hard to focus on reconciliation and she wants Gadhafi’s death to be a closure on the tragedy. She said she looks forward to seeing Libya develop and restoring ties between it and the United States.
