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.

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.
