A transatlantic legal clash between Washington and East Renfrewshire Council could scupper efforts to bring Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi before an American court.
Earlier this month, the Scottish Daily Mail revealed the US government had begun legal moves to extradite 59-year-old Megrahi, who is suffering from prostate cancer and may not have long to live.
