Berrigans face charges over damage to warheads

Federal charges will be lodged against Philip and Daniel Berrigan and six others who damaged a General Electric missile warhead facility. The activists, noted for antiwar protests in the 1960s and '70s, were arrested along with several others and charged with burglary, assault, and trespass. The group allegedly entered the GE plant in King of Prussia, where Mark 12A re-entry systems for Minuteman 3 missiles are assembled. They allegedly restrained a guard, damaged two nose cones with hammers, punctured a rubber missile sleeve, and poured what they said was human blood over documents.
