Two U.S. senators are demanding answers from BP and the British government on the early release of the Lockerbie bomber.

New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez wants BP officials to testify at an upcoming hearing. He says a cloud of suspicion will hang over the issue until all questions are answered.

There have been accusations that the oil company pressured the Scottish government to release the bomber to his homeland in Libya. In exchange, BP was awarded a lucrative oil contract in Libya.
