The scenes of the Lockerbie bomber being welcomed home in Libya as a hero were "deeply upsetting, deeply distressing," British Foreign Secretary David Miliband said on Friday.

"Obviously the sight of a mass murderer getting a hero's welcome in Tripoli is deeply upsetting, deeply distressing," above all for the families of the 270 people killed in the 1988 atrocity over Scotland, he told BBC radio.
