BOMB FOUND ON SOCHI-SUKHUM TRAIN
An explosive device equal to 2 kilograms of TNT has been found on the Sochi-Sukhum train, Caucasus Press reported on 27 January, quoting an unidentified Abkhaz official. One person has been apprehended in connection with the bomb. The Abkhaz official said there are indications that Georgian guerrillas were behind the planned bombing. Dato Shengelia, a former leader of the Forest Brothers guerrilla formation, threatened earlier this month to blow up the rail line (see "RFE/RL Newsline," 22 January 2003). LF
