[This is the headline over a report in The Scotsman. It reads in part:]
More than 1,200 people have backed the call for an independent inquiry into the conviction of the Lockerbie bomber. (...)
One year after the Libyan's release on compassionate grounds, campaigners launched the new attempt to secure an inquiry, an online campaign which attracted 1,245 signatories in ten days.
The appeal is being led by pressure group Justice For Megrahi, which involves Dr Jim Swire, whose daughter Flora was killed in the Pan Am bombing.
He said the case has been "corrosive and deeply damaging" to the Scottish justice system and called on the government to open an inquiry.
Mr Swire added: "Only is such a manner can Scotland demonstrate that it is making a sincere attempt to resolve this highly contentious issue." (...)
The petition, lodged on October 8, can be accessed through the Scottish Parliament's website and closes on Thursday next week.
[The signature total now stands at 1325.]
