January 24, 1997|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Both bombs that exploded outside an Atlanta abortion clinic last week were made of dynamite, which is regulated and not often found in amateur bombs, federal law enforcement officials said. Each bomb may have contained 10 to 20 sticks of dynamite, these officials said on condition of anonymity. Legal buyers of dynamite are required to get a federal permit to transport it between states. The presence of "high-grade commercial dynamite" was reported by CBS News, citing unidentified sources.
