Bombers Vie for Blame

ATLANTA -- A letter purportedly sent by an ultra-fundamentalist group called the Army of God claimed responsibility Monday for the weekend bombing of a lesbian nightclub and last month's attack on an abortion clinic.


The Army of God has been blamed for a number of crimes directed at abortion doctors and clinics. Three men calling themselves the Army of God kidnapped an Illinois doctor and his wife in 1982. Two years later the group was blamed for bombing two abortion clinics in Virginia.


Federal investigators said they were also checking a telephone call made Sunday to the Gay Community Yellow Pages, in which a caller claimed that a Los Angeles-based neo-Nazi group called the Sons of the Confederate Klan bombed the nightclub.
