Tripoli: Four US senators visiting Libya say they talked to the country`s new rulers about the need for justice in the 1988 Lockerbie airliner bombing.

The four are part of the highest-ranking American delegation to travel to Tripoli since Muammar Gaddafi was ousted last month.

Libya was implicated in the bombing over Lockerbie, Scotland that killed 270 people, many of them Americans. Scotland has asked the new transitional leaders of Libya for help tracking down those responsible now that Gaddafi is no longer in power.
Senator John McCain of Arizona said on Thursday he is confident the new Libyan government will help.

"We`d like to know who else was connected with this," he said.
