FBI: Ex-doctor admitted making pipe bombs

Federal agents in Ohio say a former doctor admitted making pipe bombs that were part of an arsenal seized at his apartment. An affidavit filed in federal court in Akron says 56-year-old Mark Campano of Cuyahoga Falls told an FBI agent he "did indeed" build the pipe bombs found this week at his apartment.

The affidavit filed late Wednesday does not describe a motive or any possible targets.

A message seeking comment was left Friday for defense attorney Donald Hicks.

Authorities arrested Campano after an explosion rocked his apartment complex Monday night. Police said he was trying to load shotgun shells when one blew up.

Campano's Ohio medical license was revoked in 2006 because of a long history of drug abuse.
