The United States said Sunday that the death of convicted Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset Ali Mohmet al-Megrahi ends an "unfortunate" chapter after his release from a Scottish jail.
"Megrahi's death concludes an unfortunate chapter following his release from prison in 2009 on medical grounds -- a move we strongly opposed," Vietor said.
"As we have long said, we want to see justice for the victims of the Lockerbie bombing and their families.
"We will continue working with our new partners in Libya toward a full accounting of Kadhafi's horrific acts."
Megrahi, the only person convicted over the bombing of a Pan Am get over the small Scottish town, which killed 270 people, mostly Americans, died on Sunday in Libya, almost three years after being freed from jail on compassionate grounds.
The Obama administration was outraged when Megrahi, who suffered from prostate cancer was released on compassionate grounds, and the fact he survived for three years deepened the anger.
