WASHINGTON, D.C. — A U.S. Senate committee has canceled a much-publicized hearing slated for this Thursday on the release of the convicted Lockerbie bomber after the panel was turned down in its request for key witnesses from BP and the British and Scottish governments.

An aide to Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, who was slated to chair the hearing, informed family members of the 270 Lockerbie victims this afternoon that the Foreign Relations Committee was unable to secure testimony from any of the witnesses it wanted — including outgoing BP chief executive Tony Hayward and Mark Allen, a former top British spymaster who, as a BP consultant, lobbied for an agreement that would have allowed for the Lockerbie bomber’s release.
