In a speech in London on Thursday, the British Foreign Secretary, William Hague said Mr. Koussa, a former intelligence chief in the Libyan regime suspected by American officials of responsibility in the 1988 Lockerbie bombings, had fled to London “of his own free will.”

According to British news reports, Mr. Koussa landed at a British non-commercial airfield at Farnborough, south-west of London, aboard an executive jet.

“Moussa Koussa is not being offered any immunity from British or international justice,” Mr. Hague said. “He is voluntarily talking to British officials, including members of the British Embassy in Tripoli now based in London, and our ambassador, Richard Northern.”
