Alabama bomb squad detonates suspicious object

DECATUR, Ala. (AP) - Morgan County officials say a bomb squad
detonated a small object found in a rural area.

Morgan County investigator Robert Newman said the Huntsville
police bomb squad used a robot with an explosive device to destroy
the object, which was spotted on Sunday in a roadside ditch in the
Danville area by a horseback rider.

Newman says the bomb squad used high-powered cartridges attached
to a tube to destroy the object.

He says an examination later found no explosives.

Newman says there are few homes in the area where the object was
found.
