Eco-Terrorism Group Targeted by FBI

From Times Wire Reports

The FBI and the Building Industry Assn. of Washington, an industry group, said they would offer $100,000 rewards for information leading to the arrest and conviction of eco-terrorists.

The main target is the Earth Liberation Front, a group that has claimed responsibility for setting fires at construction sites in housing developments, calling attention to what it sees as the problem of suburban sprawl.

In a statement, the Seattle FBI office said it was investigating several arsons and attempted arsons in the state over the past year and a half that may be linked to the group.
