Four pipe bombs have exploded at three different locations here since July, striking targets as disparate as an outdoor concert, an abortion clinic and a lesbian-owned nightclub. And the FBI is warning minority communities that they could be targeted next should the perpetrators strike again.

The weekend bombing of a predominantly lesbian nightclub--the fourth pipe bomb explosion here in seven months--has raised the specter of a serial terrorist stalking Atlanta.
