[This is part of the headline over a report published on the BBC News website on this date in 2011. It reads in part:]
The man convicted of the 1988 Lockerbie bombing has told the Reuters news agency the truth would emerge soon.
Abdelbaset al-Megrahi was interviewed in his home in Tripoli where he has lived since being sent home from a Scottish prison. (...)
Megrahi is seen in the Reuters interview in bed with oxygen containers beside him, although he was not wearing an oxygen mask.
He told the interviewer he had only a few months to live at best.
Megrahi also described how he was running short of vital medicine and said he had only enough pills to last four days.
"I have a problem with medicine," he said.
"Now there is a Tunisian person who is trying to find alternative medicine. I have only four tablets and after this it will finish. It will finish in four days.
"My friends and family are trying to bring me the medicine from outside.
"Why is this the way I am treated? I did not harm anyone. I never harmed anyone in my life."
The convicted bomber has previously claimed he would release new information about the atrocity but little new has emerged.
He told Reuters: "The facts (about the Lockerbie bombing) will become clear one day and hopefully in the near future. In a few months from now, you will see new facts that will be announced.
