On September 19, 1989, 170 people were killed when UTA Flight 772 was destroyed by a suitcase bomb planted by Libyan agents. Despite being one of the deadliest terror attacks in history, outside France it remained overshadowed by the Lockerbie bombing that had taken place ten months earlier. In this episode, Stuart H. Newberger appears in conversation with Helen Mountfield QC to discuss his new book, The Forgotten Flight, with introductory remarks from Ben Emmerson QC.
