U.S.: Russian Faces WMD Charges

Authorities in Pennsylvania arrested a 19-year-old Russian man on Friday and charged him with possession of a weapon of mass destruction, Altoona police said in a written statement quoted by CNN on Sunday.

The statement said police officers were investigating a reported marijuana-growing operation when they discovered a homemade bomb and bomb-making materials in a suitcase.
