Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi has been buried in a private ceremony in a western suburb of the Libyan capital, Tripoli.

Megrahi, the only person convicted over the 1988 bombing above Scotland which killed 270 people, died at his home in Libya on Sunday.

He was convicted by a special court in the Netherlands in 2001.

He was freed from a Scottish jail in 2009 on compassionate grounds as he was diagnosed with terminal cancer.
