Podcast 5: The Forgotten Flight -Stuart H. Newberger, Helen Mountfield QC and Ben Emmerson QC

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. 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. Both attacks were carried out at the instruction of Libya’s dictator Muammer Qaddafi, but while ‘Lockerbie’ became synonymous with international terrorism, UTA 772 became the ‘forgotten flight’. As a lawyer, Stuart H. Newberger represented the families of the seven Americans killed in the UTA 772 attack. Now he tells the story of the ‘forgotten flight’ for the first time.
