Animal-rights activists indicted in Oregon
WASHINGTON, Jan. 20 (UPI) -- The Department of Justice said Friday it has indicted 11 animal/environmental rights activists on terrorism charges.

The 65-count indictment, which was handed down yesterday by a grand jury in the District of Oregon, charges members of Animal Liberation Front and Earth Liberation Front with numerous instances of arson, attempted arson, conspiracy to commit arson, use and possession of a destructive device and destruction of an energy facility.

The crimes took place in at least five states and resulted in millions of dollars in damages, federal officials said.

Americans for Medical Progress, a group supported by the pharmaceutical industry, said it hoped the indictments would dissuade other animal-rights activists from acting out against researchers who conduct animal experiments.

"Our hope is that those who support the animal liberation cause will see that criminal actions bring serious consequences, and will refrain from further assaults," said John Young, chairman of the board of Americans for Medical Progress.
