Federal officials announced that investigations of the Alabama clinic and three Atlanta bombings will be merged into the Southeast Bombing Task Force. The Task Force will combine the recourses of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and state and local agencies in Georgia, Alabama and North Carolina.
The Task Force will investigate the January bombing of a Birmingham abortion clinic that killed clinic security guard Robert Sanderson and seriously injured clinic nurse Emily Lyons, as well as earlier Atlanta bombings of an abortion clinic, a gay and lesbian nightclub and a pipe-bomb explosion outside the Centennial Olympic Park.
Officials did not mention Eric Robert Rudolph, who is wanted for the Alabama clinic bombing, but they are investigating Rudolph’s possible involvement in the Atlanta crimes.
Call 1-888-ATF-BOMB with information regarding the bombing.
