IRAN paid a Palestinian terror group to carry out the Lockerbie bombing, according to a terrorist's daughter. Marwan Khreesat allegedly told relatives that his boss Ahmed Jibril oversaw planning of the attack - with Khreesat's daughter Saha saying: "He has a deal with Iran." The shock confession casts fresh doubt over who was really behind the bombing that killed 270 people 30 years ago today.
