Representatives of British families who lost relatives in the 1988 bombing of a Pan Am flight over Scotland were traveling to Tripoli on Saturday to talk to officials about plans to try two Libyan suspects.

Jim Swire, spokesman for U.K. Families Flight 103, and Robert Black, a law professor at Edinburgh University in Scotland, were expected in the Libya Saturday.``We were asked urgently to come to Tripoli by the Libyan mission in London,' Swire said Saturday in Brussels, Belgium, where he and Black were awaiting their flight. The men were to meet with attorneys for the two suspects.

Libya has accepted a proposal from the United States and Britain to try the suspects in the Netherlands by Scottish judges under Scottish law but is arguing about specifics.
