On this day: Lockerbie

Every day we'll have an "on this day" feature (the New York Times is a good source, as is the Wikipedia entry for any given day) where we look at the Google News time chart of a specific event. Today, we go back to 1988, when Libyan terrorists blew up an airplane over Lockerbie, Scotland, killing hundreds. The story has been in the news for quite some time, from the initial bombing to the trial in the late 1990s to the release of the dying bomber in 2009. It will be interesting to see, in coming years, how coverage of the bombing continues.
