LONDON (AP) — Scottish prosecutors say they have identified two Libyans as suspects in the 1988 bombing of a passenger jet over the town of Lockerbie, and want to interview them in Tripoli.

Scotland's Crown office said Thursday that the country's chief legal officer and the U.S. attorney general had agreed "that there is a proper basis in law in Scotland and the United States to entitle Scottish and U.S. investigators to treat two Libyans as suspects in the continuing investigation into the bombing of flight Pan Am 103."

In a statement, it said the two countries were asking Libyan authorities to allow Scottish detectives and FBI officers to interview the suspects in Tripoli.

The unnamed Libyans are suspected of involvement with Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, the only person convicted in the attack.
