BOMBING SUSPECT INDICTED IN GEORGIA

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People commended federal authorities for their ``dogged pursuit'' of a suspect in last year's ``terroristic'' mail bombings that killed a federal judge in Alabama and a black civil rights lawyer in Georgia. Seen as a racially motivated, last December's mail bombings ``created a climate of uneasy apprehension'' among those active in civil rights, said Earl Shinhoster, the organization's Southeast director.

An indictment Wednesday charged Walter Leroy Moody Jr. with murder, assault and mailing explosives in the deaths of 11th US Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Robert Vance in suburban Atlanta and attorney Robert Robinson in Savannah. The indictment charged Moody with mailing threatening letters to the Atlanta office of the NAACP and other judges.
