The Mail website is running a story headlined "Bomber freed to die is now being given 'miracle cure' drug: Treatment could add 18 months to his life".
The drug in question is Taxotere which, in some cancer patients, can prolong life for a few months. It is not a miracle cure, but since when has anyone expected accuracy to be a consideration for a Daily Mail headline writer?
Three paragraphs from the long story read:
"Although the gruelling treatment is 'going well', according to the [anonymous Tripoli] source, it has left Megrahi feeling depressed. He also complains of black moods because of the negative way his case has been portrayed around the world, and especially in Britain and America.
"Megrahi has always maintained his innocence of Britain's worst ever terrorist atrocity, believing he will one day prove this beyond doubt.
"The source in Tripoli said: 'His number one aim is to prove he had nothing to do with the Lockerbie bombing, and this is the reason he is putting so much effort into regaining his health.'"
