Explosive Detonated Outside Alabama AG Office

Alabama law enforcement officials are investigating after an explosive detonated outside the office of the state's attorney general on Saturday. No staff members were injured and no property was reported damaged, reports the Guardian. The investigation is led by the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency.

Attorney General Steve Marshall, a Republican, has recently become embroiled in controversy following last week’s Alabama Supreme Court decision that ruled embryos made by in vitro fertilization count as children, halting IVF treatments across the state. Marshall's office has since then tried to calm the situation as people reacted strongly to the ruling. “Attorney General Marshall has no intention of using the recent Alabama supreme court decision as a basis for prosecuting IVF families or providers,” Katherine Robertson, chief counsel in the Alabama attorney general’s office, said in a statement. A spokesperson for Marshall's office also warned people not to "jump to conclusions about a specific issue" in reference to the explosive.
