A 14th pipe bomb has been found seven weeks after the first of a series of devices was launched at the Internal Revenue Service Center here. A resident pulling weeds discovered the latest pipe bomb in ivy across the street from the sprawling income tax processing facility in southeast Fresno. Police said the device apparently was launched at the same time as the previous pipe bombs and is not being investigated as a new attack on the center. A bomb squad removed the device.

An organization calling itself Up The IRS Inc. has claimed responsibility for leaving a powerful chemical bomb on the back of a pickup truck in West Los Angeles last week, and investigators said Wednesday that the group may be linked to other, similar bombings in Southern California. In a three-paragraph letter to the Santa Monica Outlook newspaper, the organization said it had targeted the Internal Revenue Service office on Olympic Boulevard because of "high, unfair and ambiguous taxes."
