World IN BRIEF : WASHINGTON, D.C : Lawmaker Cites Report on Bombing

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Rep. James A. Traficant Jr. (D-Ohio) said he was given an investigator's report written for Pan American World Airways' insurance underwriter claiming CIA operatives in West Germany may have known a bomb was aboard Pan Am Flight 103, but ignored the information. At a news conference, Traficant read parts of the report but declined to be specific about how he obtained it. Pan Am 103, en route from Frankfurt to New York with an intervening stop in London, blew up Dec. 21, 1988, over Lockerbie, Scotland, killing 270.
