Al Clinic

A bomb ripped through a women's clinic in Birmingham Alabama this morning, killing an off-duty police officer and injuring a nurse. Authorities have not yet made an arrest in the case. It's the first time in more than a year that clinic violence had led to injury or death. Alabama Public Radio's Melanie Peeples reports from member station WBHM in Birmingham.
