A Seattle man is accused of trying to kill his ex-wife with a package bomb sent to the company where she worked. It contained a note saying, "You are the weakest link, goodbye." Christopher Joseph Bishop, a 34-year-old computer consultant, was arrested near Waco, Texas, while on a business trip. Traci Kilgroe-Bishop, 33, opened the package addressed to her Wednesday at Apex Supply Co. in Norcross, near Atlanta. It exploded, but she suffered only minor burns on her hands and face.

The president of Georgia accused Russia of bombing his nation Friday and killing one person, in an escalation of long-running tensions between the neighbors. Russian military officials shrugged off the protest by President Eduard A. Shevardnadze, denying the incident and claiming that the Georgians probably dropped the bombs themselves--although Russian helicopters and planes have bombarded the country in the past. Georgian officials said the airstrike early Friday also wounded five people.

Eduard A. Shevardnadze fired his security minister and the minister's deputy on Saturday for failing to stop a car bomb that exploded in Shevardnadze's motorcade. The Georgian leader made the announcement at a special session of the Supreme Council, or Parliament, yards from where the bomb exploded Tuesday. Lawmakers immediately confirmed the dismissals, 145-8. "They failed to prevent terrorism in Georgia," Shevardnadze said of Igor Giorgadze and his deputy, Temur Khashishvili.

The package bomb that exploded in the hands of a Hagerstown, Md., judge is probably the work of a "copycat" who is not connected to those who sent four bombs from Georgia within the last two weeks, killing two people, federal officials said Saturday. The latest bombing victim, Washington County Circuit Court Judge John P. Corderman, 47, remained in stable condition and under armed guard at a local hospital Saturday after a pipe bomb exploded Friday afternoon at his apartment.
