Lockerbie bomber's release 'a mistake'

US State Department spokesman PJ Crowley has called the freeing from custody of the Lockerbie bomber ''a mistake''.

He made the remarks after Foreign Secretary William Hague spoke to US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who said the UK may wish to explain the circumstances behind Abdelbaset al-Megrahi's release.

Four US senators believe oil giant BP lobbied for the move to secure a deal with Libya.
