Federal officials have discovered additional physical evidence linking the bombing of a Birmingham, Alabama abortion clinic with earlier bombings of a gay nightclub, another abortion clinic and the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. Small steel plates found inside the Olympic bomb were found to match plates used in two other bombs planted at a suburban Atlanta clinic.
The plates were crafted from steel traced to a metalworking plant in Franklin, N.C., where a friend of Birmingham suspect Eric Robert Rudolph worked. Earlier this week, officials reported that nails matching those used in an Atlanta bombing were found in a storage area rented by Rudolph.
Call 1-888-ATF-BOMB with information regarding the bombing.
