November 27, 2006|From Times Wire Reports

Two teenage boys have been charged with setting off two homemade bombs inside a Wal-Mart filled with holiday shoppers, authorities said. Hundreds of customers were evacuated from the store when the acid bombs detonated Saturday.

At least eight people were treated for irritation to their eyes and throat or ringing in their ears, authorities said. The 15-year-olds allegedly planted three other bombs, one on the roof of a downtown business and two on a residential lawn; those bombs were retrieved by police.
