Letter: Legal revenge an affront to victims

Sir: Timothy McVeigh "a patriot with a cause" set off his bomb in Oklahoma because he wanted to overthrow the American government. A political act.

McVeigh guilty of Oklahoma bombing

The final chapter in a horrific story of death and destruction that shocked America unfolded yesterday as Timothy McVeigh, a former soldier, was found guilty of murder and conspiracy in the Oklahoma City bombing which killed 168 people.

Jury cast a cold eye on Oklahoma horror

Barraged by emotional appeals from both sides, the seven-man, five-woman jury in the Oklahoma City bombing trial began their deliberations yesterday.

Survivors tell of Oklahoma bomb horror

From the moment Cynthia Klaver got up on 19 April 1995, it was "just a regular day", the Oklahoma lawyer said yesterday. At a water board hearing that opened at 9am where a farmer was seeking rights to sell bottled water from his land, her secretary had just turned on the tape, as usual. "In regard to these proceedings," Ms Klaver, presiding, was heard saying, "there are four elements for which I have to receive information..."

Missing plane `has no link with Oklahoma bomb'

With rumours still flying thick and fast about the mysterious disappearance of an A-10 fighter plane over the western United States, no less a figure than the chairman of the armed forces chiefs of staff, General John Shalikashvili, has found it necessary to reject one of the more bizarre theories advanced.

Letter: All clear now?

Sir: Let me understand this. Towards the end of the Gulf war, the USA decide against ramming their victory home. They explain this magnanimity in terms of some high-falutin' scruple. Meantime, without international support, they pay to foment civil way in Iraq ("CIA botched Saddam overthrow", 11 April), and condone bombing of civilian targets (or terrorism as it is known in Oklahoma). Am I mad, or is this evil?

168 dead. How many bombers?

Death penalty dilemma faces Oklahoma jury

The Coloradans called for jury service in the Oklahoma City bombing trial, like the rest of us in court, had all seen the TV film and photographs of Timothy McVeigh, the mass murder suspect in an orange prison jumpsuit with shorn hair and staring eyes.

OJ-style trial for Oklahoma bomb suspect

"There is no panic here," said Stephen Jones, leaning back on the other side of a vast leather-topped desk. "There's an ebb and flow. You take the Chinese view of history. This week, the press is bad for us, next week it could be good. We take our hits, they take their hits." The desk, like its master, is an import from the small wheat and cattle town of Enid, Oklahoma, where for 30 years Mr Jones practised law.

Oklahoma bombing trial compromised

The Dallas Morning News will publish no more excerpts from notes of a meeting between the accused Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh and his defence team, editors said yesterday.
