((Investigators now believe the first of two explosions that rocked an Atlanta abortion clinic last week may have been a diversion. The real target, they believe...were the federal agents who rushed to the scene.
Bomb goes off. Cameraman screams.
The second blast went off exactly one hour after the first bomb...and occurred at the precise area federal agents chose to set up their command post to examine the crime scene.
Sources tell CBS News the "bomb was constructed of several sticks of high grade commercial dynamite."
They were packed with a timer in a military ammunition box..."
And "accompanied by a container of nails that acted like shrapnel.
NARR:
Two cars at the scene absorbed much of the blast...which injured six people, including three federal agents.
As investigators continue to look for more remnants of the explosive device...federal bomb squad agents were warned to vary their travel routines and be alert to suspicious activity near their homes and offices.
While there are obvious similarities between last week's explosion...and the attack this summer in Atlanta's Centennial Olympic Park...there is thus far no evidence of any direct connection.

One striking difference between the two attacks is the sophistication of the devices. Investigators say the Olympic bomb was well made....but put together from common black powder and hardware store supplies. This latest Atlanta attack...agents say...is the work of someone who can only be called...an expert.))
