[This is the headline over a report just published on the website of the Belfast Telegraph. It reads in part:]
The Lockerbie bomber has lived longer than other convicted murderers who have been granted compassionate release, it has been disclosed.
Conservative justice spokesman [in the Scottish Parliament] Bill Aitken said that Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi "now surpasses the record for the longest amount of time a convicted murderer has been free after being granted compassionate release".
The Libyan, who has terminal prostate cancer, was controversially released from jail on August 20 last year.
Details published on the Scottish Government website showed 38 prisoners have been granted compassionate release since 1993.
Megrahi has now lived longer than the other convicted murderers who have been freed over this period - prompting fresh calls for Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill to release medical reports on the bomber.
At the same time it was reported Megrahi has been working on a television documentary, which could be released later this year.
