The 1988 bombing of a Pan Am flight over Lockerbie, Scotland will be the subject of a Monday hearing at the International Court of Justice. The court will decide first whether the case, in which the US and Britain want Libya to extradite two suspects for trial in Britain, falls under its jurisdiction, according to a Voice of America report. Libya wants to try the men in Libya, but has offered to turn the men over for trial at a neutral site.
