Campsite search

Federal agents have finished their searches of two North Carolina campsites. The sites are where suspected serial bomber Eric Rudolph is believed to have spent much of his five years on the run.

A spokesman says dozens of bags of evidence have been sent to the Federal Bureau of Investigation lab in Quantico, Virginia. A scaled-down force of 30 agents remains in the western North Carolina mountains.

Rudolph, a former soldier and survivalist, is jailed in Birmingham, Alabama. He has pleaded innocent in 1998 bombing of an abortion clinic that killed an off-duty police officer and critically injured a nurse.

Rudolph is also accused in the 1996 Olympic park bombing in Atlanta, where a woman was killed and more than 100 were injured, and a pair of 1997 bombings in Atlanta.
