Liberty U. student faces bomb charge
by UPI

LYNCHBURG, Va. - A student at the Virginia University founded by the Rev. Jerry Falwell was arrested the night before Falwell's funeral for allegedly possessing five bombs.

Mark D. Uhl of Amissville, Va., a 19-year-old student at Liberty University who was arrested Monday night, allegedly told investigators he planned to use the homemade napalm-like bombs to stop any protestors who might try to disrupt Falwell's funeral Tuesday, ABC News reported. The bombs were found in his car trunk following a tip from one of his relatives.

The Campbell County Sheriff's Department, in a news release, said three other suspects were under investigation, including a soldier from Fort Benning in Georgia.

An investigator told ABC News the bombs were made of a mix of gasoline and detergent and were "slow-burn" devices that would not have been especially destructive.

Thousands of people showed up at the Thomas Road Baptist Church, which Falwell also founded, for his funeral service. The funeral also attracted a few protestors and a counter-protest by Liberty students.
