German magazine: Libya to compensate victims of 1986 nightclub bombing
Libya has promised Germany it will provide compensation for people who were killed or wounded in a bomb attack on a West Berlin nightclub popular with US troops in 1986, Der Spiegel weekly magazine is to report in its latest issue, due out on Monday.
The German magazine said Tripoli had made the offer several months ago. The German foreign ministry, however, declined to comment on the report.
The April 6, 1986 attack on "La Belle", a disco popular with American troops deployed in West Berlin, killed three US servicemen and one Turkish woman and injured 260 other people.
Ten days after the bombing, the United States bombed the Libyan cities of Tripoli and Benghazi, killing some 40 people including Libyan Leader Moammar Kadhafi's young adopted daughter. (Albawaba.com)
