Far East Bomb Scare

VLADIVOSTOK, Far East (-- A bomb was found and defused in a campaign center for President Boris Yeltsin after a telephone caller warned that the building was about to be blown up, Interfax said Monday.

Police and army troops sealed off the building in Ussurisk, a city in the Vladivostok region, and evacuated more than 120 people from the neighborhood, Interfax said.

The remote-control explosive device was found in the attic, a source said.
