Anti-Abortion Extremist Rudolph Indicted in Bombings

Suspected bomber Eric Robert Rudolph has been indicted by a grand jury in connection with two abortion clinic bombings. Rudolph faces more than twenty counts in Atlanta, Georgia and Birmingham and is on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List for a 1997 double-bombing at an abortion clinic in North Carolina and the 1998 Birmingham bombing at New Woman All Women Health Care Clinic that left one off-duty police officer dead and permanently disfigured a nurse. Rudolph is also wanted in relation to the 1996 bombing at Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta and a 1997 bombing of an Atlanta gay nightclub where several people were injured. Rudolph has been a fugitive for more than three years and is suspected of living in the mountains in North Carolina. US Attorney Doug Jones says, “Now that he has been indicted, when Rudolph is arrested he will proceed immediately to trial.” The FBI has offered a $1 million dollar reward for information leading to Rudolph’s arrest.
