FBI adds suspect in bombing of abortion clinic to its list

The FBI is getting ready to add the suspect in the nation's first fatal bombing of an abortion clinic to its 10-most-wanted list and offer a $1 million reward for his capture, officials say.

Bureau officials had originally planned to announce the addition of Eric Robert Rudolph to the list Wednesday, according to Justice Department officials who requested anonymity. But the action was postponed until next week to allow the FBI time to seek expected approval from Justice to boost the reward from $100,000 to $1 million.The 31-year-old carpenter from Murphy, N.C., has eluded capture since the Jan. 29 bombing at the New Woman All Women Clinic in Birmingham, Ala., which killed a security guard and badly injured a nurse.
