Bomber release 'not BP's fault'

UK Prime Minister David Cameron has insisted BP should not be blamed for the "completely wrong" decision to release the Lockerbie bomber.

In a joint news conference with US President Barack Obama, Mr Cameron said the Scottish government was responsible for freeing Abdelbaset al-Megrahi last year.

Claims have been made that BP lobbied for the release.

The BBC's James Landale reports from Washington.
